My travels begin at home in Nevada City, California, a small town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. From there, the camera and an urge for adventure has taken me, over the last twenty years, to very remote corners of the earth on repeated trips to the mountains, deserts, rivers and old cities of Africa, the middle East, India, the Himalayas, Mongolia and Myanmar.

For those who travel far from the trodden path, they know and share with me the exhiliration of being in another world of time and the difficulties of trying to capture the strangeness, the undertones, and the beauty of some fragment of concealed lives.

Also there is a sharing with those who have been greatly drawn to the mystical and religious forces that embrace people's lives both in remote and non-remote foreign places.

It is my hope before much more is lost, that some of my images have recorded and preserved, even in a small way, some of the wonders I have experienced.
