I am an award-winning photojournalist with more than 20 years experience in the photo industry. After years as a photographer for a daily newspaper and working as a photo editor, I started doing freelance photography focusing on portraits, events and studio work.
I especially enjoy photographing families, children and celebrations because there is a fresh spirit and energy that always makes me smile. I love the challenge of capturing that in a picture. I approach each assignment with an eye towards creating images that are genuine, engaging, and fun.
I balance my freelance photography work with my full-time position as a Visual Editor for USA TODAY where I work on images and video content for online use and in print.
