Theatrical Debut

September 16th marked the opening of a solo exhibit of my photography in Santa Fe, NM. The photography on display was photographed between 2009 and 2015 and representative of my travels to Haiti, Africa, India, Nepal, Tibet and throughout the United States during that time period.

While my cinematic work had been shown theatrically (I am a film maker by profession), this was the first display of my still photography in a theater, The Jean Cocteau Cinema, an art house theater owned and recently re-opened by "Game of Thrones" author George R.R. Martin.

"I knew the minute I held this award that it wasn't going to be just a piece of decoration for my room (although, it does look awesome with the lights and all). It would demand responsibility." - Ather Sharif, 2015 Geek of the Year

Steelborn Choppers makes motorcycles. Glorious, hand-built, one-of-a-kind motorcycles. Operating out of Brooklyn, NY, the company gives intense attention to details of each bike:

Steelborn Choppers are rolling metal creations powered by American V twin engines.
Hours of dedication are spent to design and then to precisely fabricate & refine each part.
Absolutely no compromises are made when it comes to quality and the length of time it takes for each build.
It's all "one part at a time, one bike at a time" with a "total hands-on" philosophy that goes into the craft of each individual custom bike. (via)
