bio I have been a freelance photographer working throughout the Southwest for more than 15 years. Prior to that I was a staff newspaper photographer for Knight Ridder in Minnesota. Prior to that I was with Freedom Newspapers. Prior to that I was studying photojournalism at Western Kentucky University. Before this, I had a stint working in a factory in Connecticut testing battery acid. And prior to all of it I was bartending and ski patrolling in Colorado, my home state. As for a degree, I have two. One being the aforementioned degree in photojournalism from WKU, the other being a bachelors degree in Geology. I have never worked as a geologist and am still not really sure how I chose and/or completed it ... except that I like being outside more than I like being inside. My regular client list, and editorial life, can be illustrated with a simple Google search using my name. Or, let me shamelessly tell you that I have been regularly published worldwide for the past 15 years including, The New York Times, USA Today, LA Times, Der Spiegel, The Wall Street Journal, ESPN the Magazine, The Dallas Morning News, TIME, Getty Images, Polaris Images, The International Herald Tribune, Intel, ACCION, Freedom Communications, Knight Ridder, ABC News, The Discovery Channel, Turner Broadcasting, Citadel, Fidelity, The University of Vermont Medical Center, NAPPR, The Heart Gallery, Edible Communities, Albuquerque Tribune, Albuquerque Journal, The Santa Fe New Mexican, Santa Fean Magazine, New Mexico Magazine, American Teachers Federation, The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, University of Vermont, Storemont Vail Health, Etch Strategies ... etc.
