I write about adventures, the outdoors and environmental issues.

At One World One Ocean, overseeing our website, from strategy and creative, to implementation and tracking. We were voted Best Ocean Initiative of 2012 by Tree Hugger, and won Best Digital Campaign at the 2012 Blue Ocean Film Festival, the Oscars of the ocean world.

I have strong entrepreneurial experience, co-founding Dealerslink in 2005, a company focused on reducing waste in the automotive industry. As the sales and marketing guy, I sold web-based software to people who began the conversation with, “I don’t trust the internet.” We’re now the nation’s largest online trading platform for dealers.

I reported from Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, and from a 4 month sojourn in South America after the 2002 financial collapse in Argentina.

I’ve covered the contentious Marine Life Protection Act, which set new conservation rules for the California Coast.

I’ve profiled dam removal proponent Matt Stoecker, and environmental IMAX filmmakers Greg MacGillivray and DJ Roller.

I won this photojournalism award a few years ago. I no longer work as a photojournalist but still love the feeling of making a good photograph.

I like being outside and facing challenges. In pursuit of stories, I’ve attended heli-ski guide training in -20F weather in Alaska, and jetski rescue training, at night, in a storm that closed Morro Bay Harbor. I love climbing mountains and I’ve surfed since I was little. And yes, I’ve gone over the falls on a set wave at Pipeline. I highly recommend three-day pool toy river trips.
