about - granitestairway

I am an explorer, adventurer, athlete, photographer, and guide. My home is in the mountains... The Sierra, the Cascades, the Rockies, the Alaska, the Coast, the Andes... All of these and more are a part of me, and help me to express my love and my passion for the outdoors and the adventure to be experienced within them.


I hope you enjoy my galleries. Get inspired!
