In my own words...
"As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by photography. Even as a child, I would commandeer the camera and document family events. As I grew older, my interest in photography only grew greater. Right out of high school, I began working as a freelance writer and photographer for local newspapers. I continued to work for publications while I attended Louisiana State University, where I earned a degree in journalism. In an effort to receive a broad education, I majored in mass communication, and minored in history and psychology. I have worked full-time positions at two television stations and a newspaper. Due to my education and experience, I approach photography with unique perspective. Mere serendipity is not enough to create truly outstanding photography. I am a firm believer in working for the perfect shot. The greatest photographers aren't lucky – they make their own luck through putting in the necessary work and applying their expertise. A camera is to a photo what a brush is to a canvas; both are simply tools that can transform mundane objects into beautiful works of art. My focus is on delivering the highest-quality photography."
