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 LSU, where I earned a degree in journalism. 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 outstanding photographs. I am a firm believer in working for the perfect shot."
