Bio • I'm a photographer and videographer for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, my alma mater. • I spent two decades as a staff photojournalist for several major metropolitan newspapers from Florida to Washington state. • Thanks to a Racial Justice Fellowship from the University of Southern California's Annenberg Institute for Justice and Journalism, I created a multimedia project that focused on south Florida hip-hop recording artists who address social issues in their communities in spite of the traditionally commercial landscape of the local music industry. • I created and produced an award-winning music video series for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch called LISTEN which profiled local musicians through documentary film and photography. • Vintage Polaroid cameras that still work make me happy. • Atlanta is my hometown which makes me a true ATLien (shout out to Outkast) so I always roll with all of my ATL sports teams as well as all things in the shade of Carolina blue. • The pinnacle of my athletic success was a brief stint on the bench of my middle school football team. There is a photo in the school yearbook that proves it. • Secretly, I've always wanted to be a DJ and have people dance and nod their heads to the music I play...although I wouldn't mind being a super hero either, but I won't wear tights.
