CROSSRENO September 19th at Rancho San Rafael
September 2015

The Wall Street Journal put it best, “the sport that would happen if road biking and mountain biking fell in love and had an awesome baby... it’s a surprisingly great spectator sport.”

Cyclocross was started in the early 1900’s in Europe by Tour De France riders looking for something to do in their off-season. These athletes would race each other to the next town over from them, and were allowed to cut through farmer’s fields, over fences or take any other shortcuts in order to make it to the town first. Often referred to then as a steeple chase, because the only visible landmark in the next town was the steeple, this was a strategic way for these lads to stay in shape during the winter and put a hurt on their competitors during road race season. The benefit of cyclocross is that the riders vastly improve their on-the-road bike handling abilities. In addition, the forced running sections help to deliver blood to the feet and toes in those cold months, while working other muscle groups that are neglected during the race season.

Theater The Full Monty @ Bruka Theater
August 2015

“It was a really great show. Phenomenal! Not only the singing and dancing talent, but the way they got the audience riled up and excited and wondering what would happen next … I just felt like we were part of it, and I think at the end, we were part of it. They were dancing for us. I saw it in New York on Broadway about five years ago and it was extraordinary. They had a couple of big names in that cast. But Bruka's production was better. It just drew me in. The characters were real people who your heart went out to and I wanted to know more about their lives. And the end was phenomenal. It was an excellent show.” - Audience member Kathy Button after the July 12, 2015 Sunday matinee showing of Bruka's The Full Monty

Same Sex Couple Goes to High School Prom
June 2015

I was given the opportunity to photograph a beautiful lesbian couple for their prom pictures. What I didn't realize at that time was how inspirational they were. These two beautiful souls did something that most of the younger LBGT community might be afraid to do. They showed their love and support for each other and went to prom together—openly. There is something to be said about their courage. Times are changing, and it's our younger generation who are showing us the way.
