How long have you been working professionally?

1 year

What has been your favorite photographic assignment or project to date?

Every time I start a project it seems to be my favorite because I am constantly growing as a shooter. I am currently working on a story about a 13 year-old boy with Prader-Willi Syndrome and right now that is my favorite project.

What has been your most challenging photographic assignment or project to date?

Every thing I shoot seems to be challenging. I enjoy trying to tell stories. It often seems as though a story has already been told, and I enjoy the challenge of trying to shoot it differently.

Please describe any special photographic projects or assignments in which you are currently engaged.

As a staff photographer at the Patuxent Publishing Company, everything I am working on is for one of our newspapers or magazines. I am currently shooting a story on a young boy with Prader-Willi Syndrome.

What is your greatest photographic aspiration?

To tell meaningful and impactful stories through images.
