By day, I work as a grocery store manager. The rest of my time is spent in the mountains with my camera, sometimes I even bring along my wife and dog.

Have I ever told you the one about me getting electrocuted in a thunderstorm on a fire tower? It started out bad, persistently stayed bad, and only relented when my day ended at a Newport KFC buffet wearing what most would describe as boxers and a sweatshir...
