About Joel

Ever since growing up in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada mountains of California I have been drawn by the pristine beauty of snow clad peaks and granite walls. Whether it be relaxing in a grassy alpine meadow, or staring out over an endless horizon from a jagged mountain ridge, there is peace in the mountains.

Over the years I have learned that peace can also be found inside ourselves by allowing ourselves to turn away all thoughts, judgement and prejudice and just being present.

It is not just the beautiful places we must seek out, but beautiful moments. Every breath can be a reminder to live in the moment, wherever we are.
