"The things that make America wonderful, fun, beautiful, and exciting... the very things that we cherish in our lives, are in danger of vanishing forever."
Since May of 2007, I've been driving an ecologically-friendly motor home, powered by Vegetable Oil and Solar Energy, around the United States documenting and publishing images and stories of American treasures that could be lost to us during our lifetimes.

The journey began in the mysterious wetlands of the Deep South, and will continue up through the Appalachian Mountains and north along the Atlantic Coast. From there I will travel into the countryside of New England, down into the Rust Belt and abandoned industries of the Northeast, then into America's Heartland in search of farms and smalltown life. In the following years, I will make my way west, seeking out the Wild Mustangs and iconic cowboys and ranchers of Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, then spend a summer in Alaska in search of a vanishing frontier wilderness.
The images I bring back will be both beautiful and shocking as we are shown man's encroachment on nature, nature's changing ecosystems, and our own forgotten cultural icons.
Articles, photo essays, books, Fine Art gallery exhibitions, and a documentary will be forthcoming.
