From 2005 - 2006 and again from December 2007 - June 2008 I lived in Indonesia, working on a National Geographic funded research project called In Search of Orang Pendek, the quest for photographic evidence of a cryptid homonid called orang pendek (Indonesian for "short person"). Orang pendek is purportedly an undocumented bipedal primate, previously studied by many Western researchers and considered by many cryptozoologists to be the most likely cryptid to actually exist, although its existence remains unproven. See for more info.


My capacity as field researcher did not include photographer; motion activated cameras provided our data set. However, my location and love of photography provided the opportunity to capture some of the images in my stream.


During my time in Indonesia, I (and my camera) also visited other parts of SE Asia.


For most of 2007 I was a freelance photographer, with clients ranging from my local paper to architectural photography in Knoxville, TN.


These days, I live and work in San Francisco (in the video games industry) and no longer pursue photography professionally, although I am still an avid enthusiast.


Thanks for stopping by!
