About

I am an Iowa City, IA based editorial photographer with an emphasis on documenting competition and achievement—particularly in sports and the arts.

Originally from Chicago, after graduating from college, I spent almost two decades serving as an Infantry and Foreign Area Officer in the United States Army, where I served all over the world including tours in South Korea, Afghanistan, and Iraq as well as serving in three American Embassies in Central and West Africa. These experiences allowed me to document such diverse subjects as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s visit to Senegal, daily life in Guinea during the Ebola outbreak of 2014–15, and the experiences of my infantry battalion during our deployment to Ramadi, Iraq in 2004–05.

Since retiring from the Army, I have continued to develop my skills in documentary and editorial photography by working as a staff photographer at The Daily Iowan at the University of Iowa while I pursue my J.D. at the University of Iowa College of Law.
