Adventure Monkey


I love riding a bicycle. I also love capturing images and have been a professional photographer since 1990. The collision of these two activities resulted in the creation of the Adventure Monkey web site ( The purpose of Adventure Monkey is to inspire people everywhere to get off the couch and do something great with their lives. That may simply mean getting outside and appreciating the natural world surrounding them. I hope to inspire through my images.

I find myself riding through the rolling hills of the Flint Hills of Kansas as medication for the doldrums of everyday life. My photography captures the beauty of simplicity that can be found in Kansas. The Flint Hills of Kansas are the last great expanse of natural grassland left in North America and the area has an ethereal feeling to it. I hope I have captured some of that feeling in my images.

I also love to travel and never do so without a camera. You can see those images here too. If you desire a signed and numbered print email me and we will work that out.
