In 2004 I moved back to the East Coast after living in California for 25 years. I decided to investigate this significant period of my life, where I developed from a college grad into a visual storyteller and family man.

Living in San Francisco was formative, exposing me to a larger world; where I further embraced progressive ideals, healthy ways of life and an appreciation for nature.

This book is a motley collection of images, from family life to celebrities, assignments to personal projects.

Limited edition of 100 hand-bound copies in collaboration with Brenda Bingham and Michael Curry.
