I love helping people. I adore making things. I especially like helping people make things.
One day I'll figure out a way to do all of that for some sort of salary and live happily ever after. But until then, I'll just keep making books and photographs and friends.
I asked 80 people the question, "What is it you do or make only for yourself?". This is how they answered.
I self-published a zine full of photos from an early morning hike to Trillium Lake.
Taking and posting a photo every day for a year is easier than you would think.
Photography, My Love
I used to be a professional photographer. I took my first true love and bastardized it. Now I'm trying to reclaim my love of photography.
Virb was kind enough to feature my photography in one of their themes.
Guide to Portland
I get asked where to go in Portland pretty often. Seems easier to make a list, right?
Hi Big Cartel
To apply for my job at Big Cartel, I created a little webpage.
I take pretty alright photos with my phone and put them on the internet for people to heart.
When moving from Chicago to the Oregon Coast, I took a lot of photos using my shitty iPhone camera. Then I put them in a book. I think I sold thirteen.
In 2009, I took a 10,004 mile road trip around America. My friend Rick wrote stories, using the photos for inspiration. We made a book.
