As a resident of Olympic Valley, CA I love inspiring people through visual storytelling. I do this by taking timeless images of Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas, blogging on, and writing feature stories about local heroes, like Colonel “Bud” Anderson and Stephen Wampler. My photos and stories have been featured regularly in our local papers, Palisades Press (formerly Squaw Valley Times), and Sierra Sun, as well as Tahoe Quarterly Magazine, among other publications. Some of my featured articles include "As The Old Crow Flies" and "A Life Of Lofty Achievement". 


I'm an English Teacher at Lake Tahoe Preparatory School and I enjoy traveling and discovering new places and meeting new people with my wife, Nicola.

Born in Grosse Pointe, MI, I’ve lived most of my childhood between Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Cat Island in the out-island Bahamas. I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Florida State University. I’m the proud father of two children, and happily married to Nicola Jane Kennedy.

In this Summer 2020 issue of Tahoe Quarterly Magazine, read about local war hero, Triple Ace Fighter Pilot, & Living Legend, Colonel "Bud" Anderson.

Like many boys his age, a young Bud Anderson would run through his yard with a toy airplane held high over his head, dreaming of flying around the clouds with his own set of wings one day...
