CH77Great day hiking in upstate NY. Black Creek Preserve is a wonderful spot for the dog to stop and swim. But when we asked her to jump the stream, she nearly drowned. I blame it on her epilepsy medication. It’s not easy swimming when you are on drugs. I’ve tried it.

Tempus Magazine is the inflight magazine of Tempus Jets, one of the largest private aviation companies in the world. The magazine’s goal is to bring awareness and intrigue to interesting topics. The portraits I shot of Matiwos are to introduce you to an amazing story and even more amazing boy. Matiwos grew up in multiple orphanages in Ethiopia until one Connecticut family, the Rumleys, adopted the 7 year old boy and brought him to the United States. In less than a year, Matiwos has adjusted to his new life so well,  he has learned to speak fluent English, compete in many sports including football, in which he has won the NFL sponsored competition, Punt, Pass & Kick in his division. Some might say it’s a Hollywood story.
