I bought my first camera when I was 12-years-old. Being a photographer and telling the story through my lens was the only job I wanted.
It still is.
Since purchasing that film camera, I’ve expanded my portfolio to include work in Iraq, Mexico and Syria. I’ve worked with news, feature and sports photography for more than a decade, and I’m as comfortable on the sidelines of a football game as I am in a war zone.
