New York City
On September 20, 2019, millions of us walked out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels. Our house is on fire — let’s act like it.
We demand climate justice for everyone.
In the fall of 2018, my partner and I took a 10 day road trip from New York City to Horse Pens 40 in Steele, Alabama for the event, Color the Crag.
The purpose of Color the Crag is “… to celebrate diversity in the sport of rock climbing. Our mission is to increase access and exposure to historically marginalized communities by building relationships, encouraging leadership, and providing positive representation of climbing and physical activity among populations of color.”
In the summer of 2018, I converted my newly-purchased Honda Odyssey 2006 into a mobile home. Once completed, my partner and I went on a 10 day adventure, where the final destination was Color the Crag.

Back in February 2019, Patagonia invited me to shoot their first Grow the Outdoors event in New York City, which aimed to make the outdoors a safer and inclusive environment for diversity. Since that event, Patagonia has continued to invite me to shoot various events, some within the Grow the Outdoors series and some outside of it. Events include:
• Grow the Outdoors
• Done in R1
• Simon Charrière: Let It Flow
• Adaptive Climbing Group
• Regenerative Agriculture
• Training for the Uphill Athlete
• Brothers of Climbing: Repair Clinic
Work is meaningless without a purpose outside of itself.
My introduction to photography was bringing my camera to a Dumbfoundead show, slightly on a whim. At the time, I was almost exclusively shooting video. However, after that show, something “clicked” in me and I’ve been focused on photography ever since.
A heap of images of machines being machines.
