I can’t believe I photographed a Beatle. When I found out about the invite I laughed; then I almost cried. I’ve been a fan since I was born, raised by a father who played their music on repeat for my entire childhood. Singing along to “Yellow Submarine” with Ringo was something special, and the show happened to fall on my birthday eve! Thanks for the early bday gift Richard Starkey. This was a set I’ll never forget.
The first time I photographed The Revivalists was just over a year ago. It’s been amazing to watch this band take over the radio and the international touring realm since, so when they recently stopped by Red Rocks Amphitheatre for a sold-out show, I was stoked to be invited to catch them in action. This is a group with SO much energy, it pulsed among the 10,000 attendees from start to finish.

It's always an honor to photograph a Colorado band on the Red Rocks Amphitheatre stage. There's something special about these shows- the rocks become a huge community supporting one of their own. I was recently invited to photograph Denver's own Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats, and as an extra treat, Denver's Slim Cessna's Auto Club opened the night! Two Denver bands on the stage- what an evening!

Atlantic Records recently invited me backstage to Vance Joy's sold-out Red Rocks Amphiteatre show and I wrote about it. The night was a special one for the Australian-born professional soccer player turned musician and he even gushed backstage, "This is the best venue in the whole world!" I can't say I disagree.

"Whether you’re in the crypto space or you’re just generally interested in blockchain technology, it’s likely you’ve heard the 2018 buzz around decentralized exchanges, or the 'DEX' ecosystem... So what is a decentralized exchange and why are DEXs important in creating a more open financial system?" Let me tell you!

With hip-hop and pop music at the top of the charts, rock'n'roll could use a revival. Luckily, there are four women from Seattle on the scene to shake things up and they go by Thunderpussy. I recently snapped the ladies in their dressing room and onstage before their Denver show, which followed their string of official SXSW performances for their newest record, Greatest Tits. Check out my feature with the girls below plus learn how to shoot photos like these in red light here!

After recently attending the Care Coordination & Technology Congress in Atlanta, I was blown away by all of the possibilities panelists discussed on blockchain technology in healthcare. After interviewing industry professionals like Jack Shaw of the American Blockchain Council, blockchain health app Minthealth co-founder and CEO Samir Damani, co-chair of the Internet of Things (IoT) Committee of the American Bar Association Steven Teppler, and executive steward of the ETHDenver Hackathon John Paller, I wrote a feature on blockchain in healthcare.
"As you make your way to the main floor of the party, your lantern shines upon muscular male acrobats hanging in hoops from the ceiling, women in lingerie cascading around the dance floor on stilts, and various masked people feeding patrons cotton candy by hand."
And that's just the beginning.

Denver's gentrification has been a hot topic as of late, so I sat down with native Cisco The Nomad to talk about growing up in Denver, how gentrification is affecting artists in the music scene, and what he's doing to support the Mile High city's local hip-hop scene. I also snapped all of the photographs in this profile!
