What should I write about?

I Need Your Input, What Should I Write About?

Now that Dubland has been successfully relaunched I am prepping for roll out phase two of the new site, creating new content for the blog. So here’s an open call for topic suggestions. What in the wide world of travel, photography, and the general great outdoors do you want me to cover?

Reflecting on Heidi's passing six months later

Six Months

It has been six months since Heidi’s passing, a little more than one year since I went on leave from work to care for her, and two years from when we learned Heidi’s breast cancer had metastasized. There’s a part of me that feels like all those events were so long ago, and another part of me that still feels like this all happened just yesterday and I am still in the same bog I have been in for the […]

Answering Questions About Me and Dubland

Answering Questions I Frequently Receive

Over the years I have received many queries about me and my work. As part of the rollout of the newly revamped Dubland I thought I would spend some time answering questions, specifically the most common ones I get. What drew you to the outdoors? I grew up in a family that loved to camp and nurtured my love for the outdoors at a young age. It was strengthened even more with the many Boy Scout and church camp outings […]

Polychrome Overlook - Dramatic Skies assignment winner

Dramatic Skies Assignment Winner

This week I was honored to have my picture from Polychrome Overlook in Denali National Park chosen for Outdoor Photographer’s Dramatic Skies Assignment. It’s true honor to be chosen by such a respected publication in the outdoor and nature photography. For those interested in the story behind the photo it was taken on the bucket list trip to Alaska my wife, Heidi, and I planned after she was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. As we were working out our itinerary I […]

One Month

I can’t believe it’s been a month since Heidi’s passing. In some ways it feels like it’s been much longer, and yet at the same time, it feels like it was just yesterday. I would say most of my interactions with people over the past month start with the question, “How are you and the girls doing?” An easy question and yet not easy to answer in a passing conversation. Usually I answer “OK” or “We’re managing” and then measure […]

Changes Abound

Much like a stream forced to change its course to the ocean, the last couple of years of life have been filled with plenty of adjustments on our journey. This past week was yet another change in course. The company I work for, Rose Publishing, was acquired by Hendrickson Publishing. So what does that mean? On April 10th this year Rose will close its California offices and move to Massachusetts and I–as well as many others–will be laid off. However, […]

Reflecting on 2016

Saying 2016 was a horrible and forgettable year is a trendy thing to say and I won’t follow suit. I will say this year has been bittersweet. Yes it was a painful and unsettling year but it was also a time of experiencing many wonderful and unforgettable things. As my wife Heidi’s fight with stage IV breast cancer continued to progress we were able to make some great memories as a family, and go on some spectacular trips like our […]

Looking Back on 2015

Reflecting on this year and its many highs and lows is a good reminder that life rarely goes the way you want it. Our trip to Yosemite in the Tuolumne Meadows region this past summer is a good example of having to readjust. My wife, Heidi, and I planned our first backpack together in seven years for the Fourth of July weekend. It was to mark the new chapter in our lives, especially Heidi’s for beating breast cancer the previous […]

Summer Storm in Bodie – Weekly Photo

Bodie is a ghost town just off of highway 395 about 75 miles south of Lake Tahoe. Because of it’s location in a dry cold high-altitude climate it’s surprisingly well preserved. As a state park, and the Bodie foundation there is constant work to keep the structures as they were when they were abandoned. Click here to order a print.
