In 2016 I celebrated my 10th year at the Tampa Bay Times and during this year I crossed an assignment off of my bucket list. On the top of that list was flying with the NOAA Hurricane Hunters into an actual storm. During my 9 hour flight into what would become Hurricane Hermine I experienced the ride of my life. Not only for the hours of turbulent flight but the natural beauty of severe weather that only the crews of the Hurricane Hunters dare to venture.

In 2016 I also became a FAA Certified Remote Pilot which allows us to use small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) aka drones for news gathering. It is exciting to be using such an amazing piece of technology to get our camera in places that we couldn't before. Looking forward to a great 2017

I love photographing breaking news, concerts, nightlife and all things DRONE!!
