In my 14-year career as a photojournalist, I told the stories of the intriguing people and unique places in and around Arizona. Gaining trust through a relaxed nature and empathetic ear, I was allowed into intimate situations to get to the heart of the story.

My work for the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson and the Arizona Daily Sun in Flagstaff has been recognized with numerous awards over the years. My photos have been featured in the pages and on web sites of major daily newspapers and magazines including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, USA Today, and Newsweek.

Since leaving newspapers, I have been living out my own stories. I have traveled to more than 20 countries in the past two years, and divide my time between Texas, Arizona and Washington when I am stateside.
