My Best friends are the trees! My most relaxing spots are mountaintops! I love nature, being among it and capturing it through photo and video to share with others!
“Hiking is not escapism; it’s realism. The people who choose to spend time outdoors are not running away from anything; we are returning to where we belong.” – Jennifer Pharr Davis
Sometime in my late 20’s I made a decision that I was no longer going to only see the world through photos, that instead a goal of mine would be to see it all with my own eyes… and to be the one taking the photos for others to marvel at.
Drones (UAV) have been a huge hobby of mine ever since 2016 and working for a Drone startup company from China called Ehang.
Since that time I experimented with several brands, and now I strictly fly DJI. You can catch me all over the PNW Flying the Mavic series drones around, trying to gather the best photos and videos of all the beautiful scenery!
If you want to see some of my drone video – Head over to my YouTube Channel.
Hiking is like therapy, you and the mountain and the conditions.. it could be cold or slippery, or a perfect summer day.. but either way.. You find out some things about yourself.
And honestly, I don’t know any better spot than the top of a mountain with a clear view where you can see as far as your eyes allow. Those moments, standing in spots where very few people get to stand, taking in those sights… A picture can never do it justice, to scale or beauty.. which is why I have to go see it for myself. Its why I push myself up the rugged terrain, It’s why ill drop a pin on a map just to find out what’s there!
Because once you go and experience it and it changes you, it makes you feel alive and connected to nature on new levels. Its therapy.
