I already miss this place.

First landscape capture in Arizona, since making the move to Phoenix. I seriously can’t wait to get out and go explore this area some more!

I need to go back, because I am pretty sure that Yellowstone misses me. 😉

A great Christmas Day on the slopes, with the family.

I have just got to go back to Stockholm! This place is just absolutely amazing.

I am moving to Phoenix!

Yes. I have been hired on by the Arizona Department of Public Safety as a Cadet State Trooper. The academy starts on January 7th in Phoenix, Arizona. After enough work and dedication, I will be behind the wheel of one of these patrol vehicles some time next year! This is just a single step in what will be a series of exciting steps that will allow me to follow a career path that I will be proud of and to create a bigger and better life for myself.
This is a job I have wanted for quite some time and has been in development for most of 2018. I originally applied for the job back in April, went through the first phase of testing in May, then a second testing phase in August, followed by a lengthy background check. Everything fell into place and I was recently offered the position, which I couldn't wait to accept!

I am grateful for the time I have had here in Utah, it's definitely been a ride I won't forget. But I am ready to move on to other things and other places. 2018 has been a year full of difficult lessons, many experiences both good and bad, and I feel like I am finally in a place where I am ready to take on 2019, and the new opportunities that are coming with it, and make the absolute most of it!

I understand this may come as a bit of a surprise to many of you. Only a very select handful of people have known about this, even recently. I needed to make sure I had adequately informed employers, the fire department here in Saint George, and my landlords before sharing anything on social media.

I know there are quite a few of you who have wanted to try and set up shoots, or just hang out in general, with me here in Utah. I will do what I can to accommodate this, but I am moving to Phoenix on January 1st and so my time in Utah is rapidly drawing to a close. If you want to try and get together before I'm gone from Utah for the foreseeable ever, then I will do my absolute best to connect with you!

Millions drive by this every year. Most will never see it.

Just visitors on another world. Sometimes the explorations take me to some absolutely incredible places. Places that just defy explanation.

I sure had an epic time when I was able to visit Costa Rica last year. Saw some amazing places and made some new friends. I can’t wait to go back!

Looking out over the top of what is Zion National Park out in the distance from scenic Highway 14. The drive itself is absolutely incredible.
