From the earliest memories of my photography the hint I would become a photojournalist was there. In college I continually excelled in competitions and earned a reputation as the photographer to contact if something was happening in Northern Arizona. My mentor, Gary O'Brien, helped me refine my vision and my technical skills and I'm thankful for a connection that still exists.
My photojournalist's eye plays into most every photograph I continue to capture ~ even my dog photography!
I now teach photojournalism at a college in Denver and it has been an exciting honor to rediscover my roots. The opportunity to occasionally shoot as a photojournalist continues to thrill me, inspire my vision and the vision of my students.
Enjoy my past and current work.
