One of life’s great journeys began last year – an exploration of self, career, community and landscape. This is at least what Rachel and I set out to achieve. Leaving behind what we had come to call home and opening a new chapter in our lives, careers in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Rekindling a lifelong love affair with the American West and revisiting my own history – which is deeply rooted in New Mexico.

Santa Fe embraced us, we explored it’s culture and landscape with as much abandon as our time, energy would allow. Those connections to place and community became authentic and irreplaceable.

Chapters come to an end, new pages unfold.

In the past weeks we have settled back into our home here in Southwest Colorado, a difficult farewell to the life we created in New Mexico and a clear sense of the opportunities ahead!

Here’s to community, visual exploration and the challenges we all rise to meet in our own lives – foremost the experiences that define us.
