As a visual journalist, I believe in immersing the viewer in the lives of my subjects. We respond to what we feel more than what we are told, and it's that conviction that drives my work.
Behind the lens, my images and videos have borne witness to 9/11, presidential elections, riots, the Quecreek Mine rescue, a mass-shooting at an Amish schoolhouse and countless moments that shape the lives of everyday people. In the journalism community, I’ve used my extensive experience to help my peers become more effective visual storytellers. As a volunteer at the 2016 Keystone Multimedia Workshop, I coached reporters as they produced their first narrative video. My Tribune-Review colleagues also counted on me for peer edits, training and encouragement, and we were rewarded for it.
The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently honored my work with two Emmys. Earlier this year, in the 2016 Northern Short Course in Photojournalism contest, my videos swept the daily multimedia division by receiving 1st, 2nd, 3rd places and an honorable mention. I was also honored to be named the 3rd place Photographer of the Year.
As a dedicated, empathetic, passionate journalist who understands the craft of storytelling, I believe my skills would be an excellent fit for your team. Thank you for visiting my website, and please let me know how I can best help meet — and exceed — your needs.
