I began my career as a stringer at age 17 and was offered my first full-time job as a newspaper photojournalist a year later. My career with The Chronicle, in Centralia, Wash., lasted until I returned to college just under three years later.
During my time as a student, I had the opportuinity to intern at the Tri-City Herald,Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and contributed work as a videographer and Associate Editor of Photography to The Columbia Missourian. I ran a small production company in Seattle, focusing my work on nonprofits, educational instutions and corporations such as Intel and Starbucks. I presently produce online media content and photography for a number of nationally-distributed magazines.
