Seeing black and white prints slowly come to life in a tray of developer as a high school yearbook photographer sealed my fate. My journey in still photography took me to places like Uzbekistan and Greece. I’ve covered every sporting event imaginable (yes, curling is a sport). I’ve witnessed natural disasters, famous trials, presidential visits, talked to men on death row and covered an infinite number of graduations. The coolest thing I’ve ever seen is the birth of my two daughters. Now my journey is in video storytelling and I can’t wait to see where that leads me.
