Hello, welcome to my website and gallery. It is my hope that these images bring you to feel and think or in the very least the ability to reflect.
Just shy of turning 40, most of my years were spent on the United States Southern East Coast. My childhood was spent divided among the flamboyant colors of the Royal Poinciana Trees in South Florida and the charming and vibrant clay soil of North Carolina. Being able to see the beauty of these southern locations, I knew I was just starting my journey of photography. At a young age with my first camera in hand, long before digital, I took off on a European Study Abroad program to see where this road was taking me.
The early works I captured on that abroad program led me to meet my wife who was a west coaster from birth. We spent most of our early years time enjoying the beauty of the tropics and extended trips to Europe, capturing images I was familiar with. Then life presented the opportunity to move to the vast Pacific Northwest.
The PBI 2 PDX website name reflects the journey my family has had on our coast to coast move. PBI being the airport code where we called home for many decades and PDX being our new beloved area code.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
