For more than a decade, I have been an award winning photojournalist who has worked in many of America`s largest and most competitive television markets. I am currently a photojournalist at KIRO-TV In Seattle, WA. I`ve also worked in major cities like Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Houston, Miami, and Atlanta. I've also won 6 Emmy's along the way!
I believe creativity, dependability, and versatility are very important qualities in our business. Through the years I`ve tried to do more than just be a photographer. I also have extensive experience as a producer when I worked as a
member with the investigations unit that was credited with prompting changes with a charter school in Texas and homeless mission. Finally, I`m a photographer who thrives under pressure.
