Hello and welcome!

Sunrises have a unique ability to connect me with the natural world and remind me of the beauty and wonder that exists all around us. They are a magical and awe-inspiring brief few moments that have the power to transform the way I see the world. In “Sobering Sunrises,” I invite you to take a journey through seven years of stunning photography that captures the transformative power of nature. However, this book is not just about sunrises; it is a testament to my personal journey of sobriety and the support of my loved ones along the way.

Throughout my journey, I found strength in the support of my family, including my Mom, Dad, and brother Chris, who stood by me through the highs and lows of recovery. I also found guidance and great inspiration from my dear friend, John Wood, who helped me navigate many life challenges and provided keen insight and direction during my sobriety. I am forever eternally grateful to Randy Gifford and Jim Carlson for sticking by me and keeping me employed when I was becoming close to unemployable. And, perhaps most importantly, the love of my wife, Erin, whose unwavering support and encouragement is helping me bring many projects that were once dreams to fruition.

My journey is a testament to the transformative power of love, true friendship, support, and the natural world. In “Sobering Sunrises,” I invite you to see how the beauty of the sunrise became a symbol of hope and inspiration, reminding me that every day is an opportunity for renewal and growth. I hope this book will inspire you to live each day with gratitude and wonder, embracing each sunrise as a symbol of hope and possibility. For me, sunrises allow me to appreciate the simple yet profound moments of life that connect us to something greater.

Through the pages of “Sobering Sunrises,” we are reminded that the journey to recovery is not just about overcoming addiction but also about rediscovering a sense of wonder and joy in life. It is a reminder that no matter how difficult our journey may be, there is always hope for a brighter tomorrow. With each photograph I invite you to embrace the beauty of the natural world and to find the strength and inspiration you need to face life’s challenges with courage and determination.
