The saying goes: “The two most important days of a man’s life are the day on which you were born and the day on which you find out why.” ~Anonymous (often attributed incorrectly to Mark Twain)
I was born almost 47 years ago in April; I found out why—and decided to do something about it—on February 28, 2007. Fifteen years ago today, I walked out of my safe, secure job as a project manager at Intel Corporation and into the uncertain world of outdoor photography. I’ve considered February 28 my personal Independence Day, a day I celebrate like my birthday, ever since.
As I spend the day reflecting, know that I am filled with so much gratitude for you. Without you and your support, I would not be able to live the remarkably wild, fulfilling, and delicious life that I do. Thank you over and over again for this gift.
