Welcome and thanks for checking out my website. Although I find myself scattered amongst the internet, you’ve reached my online home.
I’m a photographer with a tech background; I’m deeply involved in social media and have blogged since 2001. My professional photography focuses on event, commercial, and portrait work. I love capturing the spirit and making people look great at conferences, businesses, parties, and private settings. Find out more at my photography website for Portland/Vancouver event and portrait photography.
I publish Daily Photo Thing, where anyone can leave their email address and get the most important photography thing each day sent to their inbox… in a world where we’re overwhelmed with new photography news and developments, Daily Photo Thing cuts through that noise and brings you the best of the best. I’m also the editor of Splat Photo, a photography news and information site for both amateur and pro photographers.
In November 2011, I published Alcatraz Views, a look at “The Rock” as captured through my lens.
I enjoy working with photographers and others as they figure out the world of blogging, social media, and various online services. I’m available for consulting or speaking. View some of my past speaking engagements.

I’ve had a variety of personal projects online in the past and did some time as an author for Metblogs and OurPDX.
I’m the founding organizer of WordCamp Portland, a conference for WordPress enthusiasts. Although I’ve passed the lead organizer role onto someone new, I’m still involved as one of the organizers of the event. I also founded the Portland WordPress user group which is now run by a couple other folks. When I’m not organizing events, I love to participate and speak on subjects such as blogging, WordPress, social media, photo licensing, copyright, Creative Commons, and more.
