Washington, DC, United States
I'm the managing editor for photography at Science Magazine in Washington D.C. Science covers a broad range of subjects within the field. We use a mix of stock and assignment work for the high profile portions of the magazine, including covers, features and special sections. As it is largely a news magazine and photo space is limited, I lean towards a simple and direct visual style. Before Science I worked for many years at National Geographic Magazine, beginning as a designer, but over my time there worked as a photographer, writer, picture editor and digital media developer. I began my career as a newspaper photographer in the Seattle area. At that time papers were a great training ground for visual journalism. I have an undergraduate degree in communication from the University of Washington and an MA in science writing from Johns Hopkins University.
