My Gear

My primary computer is a 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 running macOS Mojave. However, I have a 2016 MacBook Air that I use as my throw-around machine. At my side at all times is my iPhone XS Max. Although I spend the majority of my time on my Apple machines, my Canon 5D MK III is my pride and joy. It's been with me from the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula to the coasts of Portugal.


He has a Bachelors of Arts degree in electronic media journalism from the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.
