New photo pages and video of a Nepali bus ride!

Donate Now
Sorry for such a long delay in between posts, guys. I just wanted to share a few updates!

1 - I have a new Facebook page devoted to my budding photography. I will be incorporating my fundraising efforts for the Snow Leopard Trust when I can via eBay auctions of my prints, etc. Visit the following link to check it out -

2 - I also have a new Instagram account where I will be doing the same as with the Facebook page. The link is right here -

3 - Lastly I want to share a video of a bus ride I took in Nepal. This was taken coming back from the Last Resort to Kathmandu. In it are the villages of Ghati and Bahrabise. At 1:10-1:15 in you will see just how terrifying some of these roads are! More importantly, if you look closely you will see the utter destruction I saw. These villages were close to the epicenter of a second quake on May 12th that registered a 7.3 on the richter scale. If you are able to find it in your heart to give even a few dollars the organization I recommend is the Cloudbase Foundation. A friend of mine has done a lot of spectacular and selfless work in the last year plus and belongs to this group. Visit for more. Check below for the video.

4 - Lastly, THANK YOU! So far between this site and my fundraising odds and ends, you all have helped give over $1,700 to help the Snow Leopard Trust! It may not sound like a gigantic number but you can help by donating. Remember that any amount is better than zero. Don't ever let anyone dissuade you from giving even a few dollars by saying it won't help. It will!

I still have a good amount of GoPro videos to sift through and will try to post more within the next few weeks. I hope all of you are well and again, THANK YOU!

New pics are up - one to be in Lonely Planet Traveller!

Check the tabs above! I have posted pictures from my 2015 Everest Base Camp trek! Even better? One of the pictures I submitted to Lonely Planet Traveller for their "Postcards" section will be published in the February '16 issue! I've never had one of my pictures make it into such a major publication. Not even a minor one! So this is something I'm extremely excited about. Below is the one to be used. If you can, please click the "Donate Now" button above to give to the Snow Leopard Trust!

The Mystique of Manang

Donate Now

Not long ago I dug up some old audio I took of a brief interview I did with the owner of a guesthouse in Manang, Nepal. I initially was wanting to try to submit a piece in some way to PRI's "The World". They are a great resource to hear some amazing news stories from around the globe via the avenue of public radio. While I didn't end up using this audio for them, I decided to finally put something together. It's an amalgamation of snippets of the short interview, pictures I took on the last Nepal trip, and music. The song in this video is "Complex Heaven" by Brian Eno. The mood of the song - as well as the title! - is incredibly fitting. I hope you guys enjoy it! If you can, please click the link above to donate to my fundraiser for the Snow Leopard Trust!

Hey guys!

With the devastation in Nepal with the recent earthquake, I wanted to share an organization that I am working to support. A friend of mine is working with the Cloudbase Foundation and the donation page is here -

They are a group of paragliders that also work to help the people of Nepal in many other ways. This group was one of - if not THE - first group to get to the remote area just north of Gorkha, which is close to the epicenter of the quake. Watch the video below to understand the level of devastation they are facing.

Situation this morning. Since this time helicopter has landed at Saurapani to bring the severely injured to hospital. Our team has distributed all our supplies to the small villages above. Some people will eat and sleep dry tonight due to your generosity. Thank you donors. Many people are streaming past on foot heading to Barpak, which we know was totally destroyed. They are going there to search for their families members. They are asking us for the most basic of supplies for their dangerous trek to this totally cut off region: plastic tarps to stay dry and some food. We are waiting for our resupply vehicles to arrive from Pokhara as we have fully exhausted our resources. In addition it's now again raining heavily.

Snow Leopard news

Donate Now

First of all, thanks for taking the time to view this. So far no donations - outside of one generous 40$ donation from a guest at my bar - but it's all good!

Read this story about how the Stone Zoo up here in Stoneham, MA is trying to help the cause!

New pics are up! Site updated!

Hey guys! I have added a tab above with pictures from the latest trip. Also, there is no longer a tab for donations to the World Wildlife Fund. You will notice that there is a tab that shows how you can donate to the Snow Leopard Trust.

Donate Now

The above button will now be added to all future posts and will link directly to the Snow Leopard Trust's donation webpage. Thanks for your patience and I hope to help raise a good amount of money for these awesome big cats!
