Grandfather Cottonwood Tree in Early Spring
This was taken last spring when snow still falls but melts quickly in the high desert country of Southern Utah. These photos become memories of all the places I go. In some ways, it has been my photography that ties me to the land and has provided a strong connection. Life is very short so you might as well enjoy the aesthetics and beauty that surrounds us.

Wooden Skinwalker Carving
A carved representation of a Navajo witch, otherwise known as a skinwalker. These entities have deep roots in Navajo culture and it’s controversial to discuss them. I’ve had a few experiences in my own life; events that can be tied to this darker side of Navajo (Dineh) culture. Because of these experiences, I’ll leave it at that!
