I’m getting tired of it. //
You’re as good as gold. //
Be weird. It’s who you are. //
I wonder what life would be like if we as humans didn’t need water to survive. I’m curious how different the earth would be.
Shooting with friends gets me inspired. I love to experience things with others and share my moments. It’s easy to keep to yourself most of the time and hide in a shell. Get out and do more with the people you love. //
It’s about to get real. // 🇺🇸
Fun fact about me, I spelled my middle name wrong until I was 15 and saw my birth certificate.
I want to get to know who you really are and not who you “want to be.” //
There are people that come into your life and eventually cause pain and negativity. There will always be evil and pain and it sucks. But I’ve learned a lot from these people and experiences. I can easily say I’m excited to take what knowledge I have now and apply it to my future. //
listen quietly to me
knowing the sound
of my head and where
each and every
note arises from.
give me heart to home
I’m a stone in roam
to find an origin
from where we began
circling around the sun.
slow piano keys
as reminding pieces
between unturned pages
as those colors seem to
exist without seams.
At the trailhead, about 10 minutes before taking this photo, we read a sign to steer clear of mule deer as they can be very defensive & even violent. So you can imagine our slight worry as a mule deer came down the trail, headed straight at us. Fortunately, he paid us no mind and proceeded to through these burned trees and continue down the mountain.
Working to get out of my comfort zone and really step out into the world. My dream has always been to explore and experience the far and unknown. It’s time to make that a reality. // also, here’s Kaitlyn looking like a pro on this cliff side.
It’s amazing what the simple act of a few words or questions can do for someone. //

Successful trip to Rainier this morning with @kt.gains.
We had a lovely encounter with an adult bear, but luckily it was far enough way and left us alone... that shortened our trip up a bit, but hey! We’re alive and that’s what matters, right? 😅
Call it a leap of faith. // I’m thankful for my decisions in life and where I am today.
I don’t remember the last time I was this free. // Headed to Mount Rainier in the morning with @kt.gains
🤙🏼 let’s do this!
Learning to fly. // I’ve recently gone through and found a collection of my old photos over the years. Unfortunately, a large amount of my photos were lost on my old computer (that died), so it’s really exciting to be able to see these after years and get back into editing some unforgettable adventures.
Memories are important even if the people you make them with aren’t always there forever. You need to make them and experience life. I don’t regret my mistakes in life because I know in the end they’ve helped create who I am today. I can only keep moving forward, trust in that and continue to make the best memories possible. //
I think it’s about time we went back to hurricane ridge. 💁🏻♂️
You’re killin’ me with your eyes. //
You’re such a beautiful mess. //
I’ve been making a fool of myself just so you’d notice me. //

There are no better friends than the ones who share the same passions and hobbies as you do. Love you, bro. //
But all my senses are saying that I’m undone. //
You’ve got me off track, got me thinking abstract. //

It takes a lot to make me angry... aside from any red lights 😑

Speeding up is the easy part, it’s slowing down that takes work.

Can’t wait for this weather again //

Cape Flattery // Taking a little spontaneous trip to Canada with the best of friends. I hear milk comes in bags there. 🤷🏻♂️
Truly I am blessed.
I’ve always been the type of person who was annoyed when people say that because it just sounds stupid cheesy, but I know it’s a great of thing and I even need to say it myself. Positivity is a powerful thing and can affect you in a lot of ways. //
