On to Plan C:
A Return to Travel

5-star review from Online Book Club! After more than two years of trip cancellations and travel credits, the world finally started to open again in 2022. Part travelogue and part photo essay, On to Plan C finds its author vaccinated, masked, and eager to get back on the road, assessing the realities of a post-COVID world. With ever-changing testing and entry requirements, is it possible to get back to normal after everything changed? Or is there now a new normal when it comes to travel? Includes nearly two hundred color and black & white photos.

Early Travels After a Late Start

Awarded First Place in Travel by the BookFest Awards and an Independent Press Awards Distinguished Favorite! Starting in Tibet, then on to Mexico’s Copper Canyon and Peru’s Machu Picchu, followed by a dip into Central America and North Africa.

Covering my first few years of exploration, these personal and anecdotal tales of adventure highlight my encounters with diverse peoples and cultures, revealing a respect for history and a sense of growing wonder at the grandeur of the world.


Can’t Get Here from There:
Fifty Tales of Travel

Winner of a Silver Award from the Nonfiction Book Awards! From a birthday weekend spent in Paris with no money or passport to a camel-jacking in Cairo and being smuggled across a checkpoint in Bolivia, these tales offer exotic locations and out of the ordinary experiences. Some experiences go more smoothly than others. “His stories are entertaining and visual, with just enough lost luggage and canceled flight instances to keep the reader turning the pages. A short, fun read!” ~ Nonfiction Authors Association Book Awards Program


Shelter-in-Place Still Lifes:
A Selection

To mark a year since the beginning of California’s Stay-at-Home order (March 2020) and the start of my Shelter-in-Place Still Lifes project, I’ve put together a Kindle collection called Shelter-in-Place Still Lifes: A Selection. The book contains a selection of my favorite still lifes taken over the past year. All photos were taken of objects around the house using natural light and photographed using the Nikon Z6 and 105mm f/2.8 lens.


Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown.
