  • When I’m not at Blackstone Square, you might find me

    Walking around our neighborhood with my family or treasure hunting at various thrift shops.

  • Everyone in the office could tell you how much I love my

    Cameras / family / pantheon of odd nicknames and sounds

  • My favorite view in the world is

    Oregon high desert.


  • Walking with my son to find the giant machinery and trucks he loves

  • (Sometimes) resisting another book or camera purchase online

  • Enjoying a low-key date night with my wife at a local eatery
