David's Adventure Biography
Born and raised in the heart of the PNW, you could say that adventure was in my blood. I grew up in an immigrant family that wasn’t too involved with the outdoors. As I grew up my older brother began to take me out skiing and hiking which is where the first spark of love for nature happened. After being introduced to hiking I was always itching to go out and hike to mountain tops. Slowly, I began to develop more friends who had similar interests. We were hiking every weekend and soon enough I began documenting all the adventures. Having learned about media in high school I already had a passion for the arts. This passion quickly flourished alongside my passion for the outdoors and became my main source of income while completing school. I find that taking pictures enhances my experiences as I try to view nature in a different light and angles.

I spent a weekend in the Canadian Rockies with a good set of friends. Our biggest hike of the weekend was to Lake O’hara. We hiked just under 35km day with views that could change lives. I’m itching to go back and spend more time up there!
Six friends and myself set off for a six day canoe trip at Bowron Lake circuit. We experienced just about every weather pattern you can imagine, which resulted in quite a memorable trip.
This was a simple overnight hike that involved no sleep. A few photographer friends and I set out to hike up to one of the best views in BC for sunset. We were able to capture a gorgeous sunset, take pictures of the milky way, have a 3 hour nap and hike to another location for sunrise. Typically this is how most of my adventures happen in order to receive the best lighting for photos and video.
My next big adventure is happening in February 2018. I’m off to Iceland for 8 days during my University spring break. I am extremely excited to explore some new territory in the winter months!
