I grew up in central Iowa and lived there until I graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in engineering.  I’d like to say that photography and the outdoors have been a passion of mine since I was young, but they were simply a couple of many interests that didn’t take off until later in life.  It wasn’t until I left Iowa and started working in the “real world” that I recognized how much I enjoyed and looked forward to being outdoors or just simply exploring areas around where I lived.  After moving to Albuquerque, NM, my interest in photography began to develop.  I realized that I needed a break from the hustle of the corporate world of long hours, deadlines, and time schedules.  I found that time spent outdoors, in creation, helped me relax, refocus, and get ready for whatever was ahead. 


Photography had always been an interest of mine, but I never took it any further than family photos or travel photography.  In Albuquerque, I started taking more pictures as a way to document my new home and to share it with my family.  A good friend eventually helped me bridge my photography interest with my love for the outdoors.  Since then, I’ve traveled as much as possible to the edges of wilderness photographing the wonders of the natural world.  I’ve grown to love exploring Alaska and the Western US and now make my home with my wife and family outside of Portland, Oregon.  We love the Pacific Northwest and enjoy all that it has to offer. 

The naming of this website comes from the basic sense of wonder that I’m filled with when watching a sunrise or observing the simple beauty of wildlife living in its natural habitat.  I believe in the creation and believe that it was accomplished through the acts of an almighty God.  I believe that the stewardship of the creation was left to mankind.  How we enjoy, preserve, and utilize the environment that we've been given is up to us.  Certainly there is a balance between radical/violent environmentalism and pure apathy that has been overly politicized with little regard to the impact of either argument.  I prefer to focus on the fact that the creation is a gift and through good stewardship we can enjoy it along with future generations.  It is my hope that you can see the hand of the Creator through my work.


After ample encouragement from my wife, I decided to start the Wonder of Creation website as a way to share our travels and the wonders of the creation with others.  I appreciate your interest and hope you enjoy the site.  Thanks for stopping by!
