Biography

“After obtaining an undergraduate degree in television and radio production at Texas Christian University, I was fortunate enough to be awarded a scholarship to pursue an M.F.A. in the photography department at Yale University where I studied with Richard Benson and Tod Papageorge. Yale’s program trained me in photography production and critique and this dual emphasis taught me to greatly respect the art for its honesty, its precision, and its profundity…before going to Yale, I had several of my photographs published in newspapers, including The Dallas Morning News, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Amarillo Globe-News, and The Orange County Register. After finishing my M.F.A., I turned to photojournalism as a career at two papers, the Augusta Chronicle, and the Decatur Journal-Review, where I currently work. Photojournalism taught me to make photographs every day; a practice I have continued up to the present day. Currently, I teach Photography and Art Appreciation at Georgia Perimeter College, a community college that primarily serves a working class population. I also teach classes here at The Camera Doctor in Decatur, Georgia, the town I currently call home.”
