AN OUTLET FOR MY HOBBIES
I'M NOT A PROFESSIONAL ANYTHING, BUT I ENJOY DOING A NUMBER OF THINGS. I'VE REALIZED THAT THE THINGS I WRITE, PHOTOGRAPH, AND RECORD DON'T DO ANYONE ANY GOOD SITTING ON MY HARD DRIVE, SO I'M USING THIS AS A WAY TO PUT THEM INTO THE WORLD. I HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM.
I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU WOULD, BUT IF YOU WANT TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ME, YOU'RE WELCOME TO.
I've enjoyed taking pictures since high school. I started in the photo lab working with film and the chemicals, and the time consuming art of it. But when my daughter was born I converted to digital just because of the number of pictures I knew I'd be taking.
With my photography I like entropy and juxtaposition. I don't call myself a photographer, I just like taking pictures, and since I like entropy there will probably be a lot of graffiti, rust, and decay in here. Abandoned places are especially appealing to me.
I enjoy writing and these are the stories I've been working on but haven't found a way to get them out into the world until now.
It started with die offs of fish and aquatic mammals, within days nearly all animal life on earth was dead. This isn't a story about how the world was saved, or how something brought us back from the brink, this is a story of how the world ends.
Middleton is a city well past its prime. Between organized crime and an apathetic and corrupt police force, the town is slowly dying. The story begins with Mary, a woman murdered to hide a secret. Melissa May is a private detective hired to find out what happened, and finds more than she expected.
In 1900 an accident in Colorado Springs, Colorado opened a rift in reality that changed the landscape of America and made harnessing electricity too dangerous for mankind. Sevin is an Agent charged with the protection of the outposts on the frontier, the land abandoned after creatures began appearing following the Colorado Springs incident. As she protects the people of the frontier she begins to think the war she's been fighting isn't the right one.
I've been in a few bands of varying types over the years, though the only one that ever recorded in a studio was The Opposition. A semi-political punk band I was in for 4 years in the early 2000's. The band was started by my friend Nick Bane and myself. The band's "gimmick", if you want to call it that, was that every dollar we made off our live shows was donated to charity. In our 4 years we donated thousands to a wide range of charities working to help the homeless, drug addicts, cancer patients, and our cd even benefited the local pirate radio station. The band ended up dissolving after various aspects of our lives changed, but it's a time I remember fondly and left me with a lot of interesting experiences.
Last year my wife and I attempted to raise money to publish a weird art-ish project via kickstarter to raise money for the Feel Your Boobies Foundation. The campaign failed to reach its funding goal, but we wanted to put it out here so it can hopefully raise some money for the charity. The book is available to view here for free, we just hope that if you read it you like it and will donate the the Feel Your Boobies Foundation.
