A one year documentary of a discarded decorated veteran named Lew. Lew spent his entire career in the United States Air-Force. Through a 15 year friendship, I eventually became his sole caregiver. Together, we traveled through his journey of stage 4 oral + neck cancer. I documented the last year of his life, up's, down's and everything in-between. After his death in 2011, I continued to photograph what took place around me. To this day, this year long journey changed my life to the point that I left a 20 year design career to pursue documenting other people's personal journey's.
