I’m a journalist, cinematographer and filmmaker based in Seattle.

Earlier this year, I was named a National Geographic Explorer.

I shoot, edit and produce films about real life. I aim to make work that's smart and stylish. My stories appear in National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Al Jazeera, Outside Magazine and The Washington Post, among other publications.

Previously, I was a designer at IDEO in San Francisco. Before that I lead the design of a venture-backed startup in New York City.

I grew up the youngest of four in northern New York, the son of a forestry professor. Whenever possible, I like exploring the wildness and wilderness of our world by headlamp.
