"In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it's to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success." --Bill Watterson

Me? I used to be a computer programmer, but quit. Now I work part time as an instructor for Cornell Outdoor Education. I teach rock climbing, ice climbing, tree climbing, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, canoeing, backpacking, outdoor photography, teambuilding and first aid. Not all at the same time.

I travel often and for months at a time. I've been to all 50 states and six of the seven continents. This web site is mostly just a bunch of my trip photos. Enjoy!

P.S. Thanks to Annie for designing the web site! But I did the coding, so if there is something you don't like it is probably my fault, not Annie's.
