Communication is my passion. I love exploring the endless options for story telling--assembling a collection of photos/video/words or finding that single image that contextualizes an event or moves someone to understand the world just a little bit better.
I possess a broad range of media experience from newspaper photography and writing to video production, blogging, some graphic design, some web design, and a smidgen of radio.
I've taught writing, photography, journalism, and communication courses at Eastern New Mexico University, Arizona Western College, and The University of Missouri-Kansas City. I taught English Language Arts for two years at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School in Lee's Summit.
