the making of things: food, wine, art, home
The Sharecropper article by Liz Dodder sums it up nicely…
I love food. And cooking. Particularly over fire. I am also a winemaker, a photographer, and an all around jack-of-all-trades.
Biscuits and southern food are a passion of mine in a huge way.
All of the photos you see were taken by me unless otherwise indicated.
I am originally from the south. I was born in Biloxi Mississippi. However, I have lived all over the US and have lived in around 20 states. I have traveled to all except Alaska, Hawaii, and North Dakota. Which I aim to correct someday.
I have had many occupations. I started assisting my father with his photography business when I was 10. My first real job was a backcountry guide/survival instructor/rock climbing, whitewater, caving guide. I have been a baker, barista, body guard, bouncer, tattoo artist, handyman, auto mechanic, wine guide, set dresser, software tester, trout hatchery manager, antiques dealer, leathersmith, bike mechanic, ocean kayaking guide/instructor…anyway you get the idea.
My passions: my daughter, feeding people, food, motorcycles, sailing, wine, music, photography, chickens, growing food, the impending and very eagerly anticipated Zombie Apocalypse…
