It's simple for me: I do it because I love it. Outside is where I'm at my best; it's always been that way. When I lay my head down at night I dream of hiking secluded trails, mountain biking wicked east-coast style technical singletrack, kayaking rivers and lakes, trail running through Appalachian forests. Everything I do otherwise is just a way to enjoy more time outside in the areas I love. Without these places and experiences I'm not whole. The camera comes with and I continue to develop in hopes of always improving.
