In 2008 I moved to Oakland. I had never been to the Bay Area, but headed there in my Mini Cooper with my best friend and my pug. Leaving Florida was something I had to do before I turned 30 and I have no regrets. I loved everything about the Bay. The intelligent conversations with strangers, the abundance of vegan eateries, the sounds of BART passing by, incredible nature in every direction, the political climate and the overall sense of community.

I try to go back to Oakland at least every other year to visit friends, document my client’s families and absorb all of the Bay Area Goodness. Here are some of my favorite images from my trip in December 2016.
