2014 has been an incredible chapter in my life. I spent most of the year on the go traveling with Lucas Gilman and his production company. Under Lucas Gilman Productions, I went to Iceland, Peahi, Maui , Peru, Oahu, and Micronesia. I had the opportunity to work on some incredible projects and meet and revisit some old familiar faces.
I achieved a life long dream since I started shooting photos and was Published by National Geographic in their online feature Extreme Photo of The Week. I was also Hired by Red Bull to cover what now will go down as one of the most recent historic swells to hit Mavericks in the past decade. Also a short film I produced, The Aloha Project, took off virally and was one of the works I have been most proud of to date.
Just when you think you've done and seen it all, something comes along and surprises you. As I was wrapping up a shoot in Peru and looking forward to some much needed down time, Luke Davis invited me on a last minute trip to Micronesia. This of course was being squeezed in-between another project I was supposed to start on 5 days later. The trip was one of the best surf trips I had ever been on in my life and Surfline ran a full trip feature.

Earlier in the year I went on another surf trip for Oakley. We took off to Nicaragua where Eric Geiselman pulled the first flip I have ever captured on film.
Also a huge thank you goes out to the people at Magnetic Creative, Fugoo and Passenger Clothing as they took me in as part of their family and respective companies.
I took a personal trip to Tahiti this past summer and got really, really barreled.
January 1, 2014 was a memorable date as well for me as I finished a personal life long goal and finished backpacking the entire Ko'olau Summit Range solo, unassisted, and in one shot. That was the best possible way I could have started off this year.
2014 has been nothing short of an incredible year and I look forward to what 2015 has to offer.
Below you will find some links to some of my favorite moments of 2014, enjoy =)
