About the Artist

I have seen many things in my career as a photojournalist & professional photographer. I have seen moments that filled me with joy and moments that made me want to weep with sadness.

Through them all one thing has remained true: A photograph can bring a moment alive for those who see it. More than radio, video or any other medium, a photograph can transport you through time and space into the very heart of a moment.  

For nearly 20 years, I have worked professionally as a photojournalist, wedding and portrait photographer. Beginning  as photo-editor and contributing writer for six years at the Independence Daily Reporter.  I continued my photography career in central Florida, working as a freelance and studio photographer for five years. Returning to my home in Kansas for 7 years,  I worked as a photojournalist, New Media Director & IT Manager for the Harris Group.  Now as a proud member of Washington State University, I continue pursuing my photographic visions in Eastern Washington.
My corporate work has included Cessna Aircraft Company and Cisco Systems, Inc. My editorial work has been published across the country including: The New York Times, USA Today,

ESPN, Automobile Magazine, The Washington Post, The Seattle Times, Salt Lake Tribune, The Boston Globe, and many others.

I continue to freelance for editorial publications including the  The New York Times, but my focus is mainly on art, wedding and

portrait photography.  Last year, I completed my first book: The Sound of Silence and it’s accompanying art shows. It was a year-long process but is now available in stores and on amazon.com.

My current projects include: Worlds Within Worlds,  a study of extreme macro & microscope photography; Mountain & Valley, a study of  life and death through time lapse, scanography & photo mosaics; Enchanting Dreams, involving scenic photography by starlight. And most importantly; photographing my beautiful new home in Washington State.

Whether it is a deer from my front porch, a multi-year art project or a once-in-a-lifetime wedding portrait, photography for me is capturing moments in deeply personal and

moving ways.
