About this pro

Hi! I have experience teaching students of all ages, and have been trained by and worked with some of the top music, sports, and news photojournalists in the USA. I have a Master's in visual journalism from the University of Texas, and my work has appeared in Rolling Stone magazine, The Washington Post, and numerous other regional and local outlets. I am comfortable teaching students at any level of experience or skill. 

I love being at big events, and if someone wants to pay me to take pictures of a musical performance or basketball game I am there .
