Indianapolis, IN, United States
I have been taking pictures for over 30 years. At age nine, I used a vintage 1959 Petri rangefinder and the exposure information inside a Tri-X film carton to complete an advanced art class project. By 13 I had my first darkroom setup, much to the detriment of the top of my mother's washing machine. I got his first paying photo job at 15, and at 17 did a yearlong photojournalism mentorship with his home town paper.
After going to school at the Southeast Center for Photo/graphic Studies I got a job as a newspaper photographer. Through a series of bizarre confluences I eventually found myself in an office as a Vice President of Corporate Development & Technology with a news organization, updating spreadsheets and looking for synergies.
In 2001 I left the steady paycheck world, and have been an Independent Photojournalist specializing in sports, news and portraits ever since.
