Bio
I’ve been a student, a Peace Corps volunteer, an English teacher, a journalist—but always a photographer.
My portfolio consists of images from Africa, Europe, Asia and throughout North America.
It is the story behind these images that mean the most to me. These moments allow others a chance to explore a segment of my travels. They document the history of my life behind the lens—a life I wish to share with others.
I have more than 10 years of professional photojournalism experience, but I have enjoyed photography for more than half of my life.
Throughout my career, I have made it a point to infuse artistic principals into the story-telling aspects of each picture I take.
I have experience with weddings, portraits, maternity photos, corporate events, product shots, real estate and
more.
I have worked with three newspapers as a photographer/reporter and currently work with The Charlotte Observer.
