I have been working as a freelance photojournalist since 1999, and I have been based in Washington, DC since 2003. I am formally educated in history. While working with newspapers, magazines, agencies and other media outlets, I have covered many subjects and stories locally, domestically and around the world over the years. Covering elections, general news, disasters, sports, and conflict has left me with a rich collection of experiences to draw upon while conducting my day to day work as a journalist. These experiences, combined with my equipment, and technical knowledge, give me the ability to work and report in nearly every situation around the world.
