Growing up I had a passion for illustration and cartooning. I even had, at one point, an ongoing comic series called Unkempt Man sadly that was set aside, people thought I would be crazy to try to get something as bizarre as that published in that time period, but with the creation of South Park, Salad Fingers, Happy Tree Friends and Cyanide and Happiness in the following years, perhaps I would have been safe continuing it. Anyways, I was also dabbling in photography though it had not yet became a serious interest for me. I also had a significant interest in painting, though I was not the best with the brush, yet I loved watching Bob Ross and was devastated when he died. Despite the ending of Unkempt Man my creative spirit never ended
I started my serious interest in photographing Colorado's landscapes as a means of documenting my climbs of the state's many majestic mountains. Over time I realized that the state's scenery was worth sharing. What a more perfect place than Colorado can there be. I have heard Colorado being referred to as 'Gods Country', and in the words of the great Teddy Roosevelt when on a tour of this state referred to it as a place that "Bankrupts the English language!". I couldn't agree more.
