Work has previously appeared: National Daily Newspaper, Community Newspaper, Trade Magazine

I have documented hundreds of lives and events over the past several years. The one comment I hear most often is, "It's like you've known them all of your life!" I work hard to ensure the images and words accurately portray my subject. I want to make certain the feelings and passion are there as well. I have covered happiness, sadness and heroes - real life heroes. I understand the responsibility and I never take it for granted. I covered President George W. Bush on the horrible day of September 11, 2001 and I have covered an absolute inspiration of a man with Parkinson's Disease. I have also covered the beauty of America and her people along with the beauty of the world. I am fully digital with the latest in professional Canon cameras and equipment. I have an extensive editing suite, a mobile studio and the technology to transmit on location. I am also an experienced traveler - from Europe to Cuba to great cities to the backroads of rural America, I am able to provide professional, ethical service in a time sensitive manner. Over the past few years, I have won 35 awards for excellence in editorial writing and photography.
