My father handed me one of his spare Nikons, an FM2, when I was 10 years old, growing up in a small mill town in northeastern North Carolina. A year later I was processing my own film and making prints before earning my first byline for a story/picture package of a middle school basketball game January 9th, 1992. 

Over the ensuing decades, I’ve worked in newspapers across the country amassing over 100 awards from collegiate, state and national journalism/photojournalism institutions. I am alumni of the Eddie Adams Workshop 2001.

My father and grandfather before me were newspapermen. Collectively my family has over a century of newspaper experience. 

Today, I work as a freelance photojournalist with a wide variety of knowledge and skill. My degree is in commercial photography with an emphasis in journalism and portraiture. 

This archive is for my family, Jeana, Wilson, Stella and our new boy Milo, so they may be proud of my work.

Currently based in southwest Colorado.
