  • Another throwback to 2014. My previous job involved a lot of scenic road trips within BC, and I especially miss the road trips to the Kootenays. Unfortunately many of those trips happened in the Winter months when the roads were terrible, but I did get a few opportunities to revisit places from my childhood during more pleasant days. This park in Castlegar was a favourite: Zuckerberg Island

My grade 6 school was just down the street, and when we had our gym class outside we would run to Zuckerberg Island. There's now a causway that allows visitors to reach the island without crossing the suspension bridge, but that bridge was the only way across in 1986. Some my my classmates jogged calmly across the bridge while others shrieked with every movement of the bridge. And then there was always at least one obnoxious kid who made it his mission to make that suspension bridge sway and jump as much as possible. That was usually me. 
Now I'm the obnoxious grown man, working in a government office, doing the same thing in the elevator to get a reaction from coworkers. Some things you just don't grow out of. 
If you ever find yourself driving through the Kootenays and you have the opportunity, you should check out Zuckerberg Island. It's a lovely place for a walk or a picnic, and maybe you can scare your loved ones while walking across the bridge.

  • ▵ Dude where’s my snowboard ▵
Did you know that snowboarding was forbidden in Whistler? It’s only in 1987-1988 winter season that they saw the potential to open up the resort to a whole new audience! Good thing they did! You a skier or a snowboarder? 👇🎿🏂let us know and then we can see if skiers or snowboarders comment more 😜

A sunny day after storm at @kickinghorsemtn backcountry is something I can’t miss... It was supposed to be a driving day from Golden to next stop. But I had to go up to mountains and shoot photos!! #goldenrules

  • M A G I C.  I N S I D E. ✨ Find those places that remind you you are magic, those places that hold you as if you were in a sacred container of love, those places that remind you of who you are. - Hayley Rose.

For me these places have a lot of space in-between but I know I’m tired of not staying in them, where I belong, where my heart knows it’s worth and my souls fills with passion drive and love. Step by step, now or never. The heart and soul knows.

  • I’ve always find myself pausing when writing something on here, I often opt for the flavorless description, something bleak yet to the point. I keep my thoughts for my myself, in my notes, years of short stories, personal experiences & rants covered in dust. -

I felt photography was a beautiful way to convey emotion, to show people how I see the world. Though it doesn’t feel like enough lately, a picture says a thousand words, but are they my words you are seeing? -

I want to create an identity, a story or a feeling to come with each one. -  I want them to come to life.

  • All these things I filmed for myself . .

Be special but never become vain or full of yourself .. It's ok to tell someone off when you need to , but never be insulting .. It's ok to be angry sometimes, but never be hurtful ..

  • Two days and nights

I was thirsty from Halayoun
In a final look
But she did not return
She killed me jealousy
And a drop in my heart
And the fire in my chest
