As a 3-year-old, I published my first newspaper, the "Roll News", on my mother's typewriter. At 15, I picked up a camera and started shooting for my high school and local newspapers. Today, I'm a photojournalist based in Seattle.
Between my youth and now, I've worked at a number of newspapers and shot stories for many more. I've won awards, created magazine covers and even gotten to see my byline in The New York Times.
More importantly than any of that, I've been honored to document the communities I've been a part of. I've seen the best and worst days of people's lives play out in front of my lens. I've met characters that everyone knows and many, many people with stories that everyone should know.
I'm also a baseball and soccer fan, an occasional musician, a cut-rate endurance athlete, and an avid reader of biographies and history.
The story I'm most excited about is my next one. I'm available for assignment worldwide.
