Act Natural

So much uncertainty. I'm not immune to it; none of us are.  But I'm careful to not become entangled in the pursuit of creating certainty and control where chaos is the dominating factor. In my mind, this pursuit encourages one to succumb to fear, worse-case scenarios and playing to "not lose".  When it comes to... Continue Reading →

Step Up & Help – sale and donations

I will be donating 100% of the money made from art sales through June 2020 to two organizations fighting for social justice and rebuilding a community in need. The donations will be split 50/50. One half will go the Southern Poverty Law Center and the other half will go to the Midway United Fund. To... Continue Reading →

Lock down & look ahead…

Been a while. Needless to say I guess, but my plans for 2020 have been thrown out and the past months have been spent reassessing life, art, fishing..everything. I'm sure it's not too different from what y'all are going through. During this time I did manage to finish a handful of works, get some prints... Continue Reading →

Patience

Patience. That’s the mantra of late. Maybe it’s the characteristic that has defined the better parts of my life to date. Fly fishing, especially for steelhead, muskie and other “unicorn” type fish really embodies the essence of patience. Starting at the top of a run, making your cast, mend, swing and then repeating the method... Continue Reading →

Crash Course

I'm extremely fortunate to share many of my adventures & projects with great friends. “The Crash” has come to signify that sense of fortune for me. Eternal gratitude to my good buddies Kyle Zempel, Brian Koll and T.C. Worley for sharing this experience with me. TC did an amazing job filming everything, and once again Kyle... Continue Reading →
