Photographer since 2000. Used to self-process and print 35mm B&W. Then I discovered Lightroom. Based out of sunny Ventura, California the perfect city in So Cal. You will see an inordinate number of beach photos--- my apologies.



Ken Block Gymkhana

Ken Block (owner of DC Shoe Co. and awesome driver) put on a free show a few days before X-Games 2011. For those that don’t know (that was me up till a few weeks before this show) gymkhana is basically stunt driving. It was incredible to watch Ken Block (and two motorcyclists) put on an amazing show in the Dodger stadium parking lot.

The bikers were taking off from ramps flying in the air over Ken as he drove around all sorts of obstancles. Sadly, Ken’s Ford died a bit early, so the show was cut a bit short, but I still had a chance to capture some great photos before this happend. Since this was such a small event (it looked like less than 300 spectators) it was easy being right up next to the action. If he ever does something like this again, I know I will be there!
