My Occupation Photographer & Picture Editor
My Bio A native of the Pacific Northwest, I first picked up a camera at the age of nine in my home state of Oregon. The camera has been a ticket to the world ever since. After college (BA Political Science) I was a Senior Photographer and Picture Editor with Reuters from 1989 to 2005. Fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, I lived and worked abroad for more than two decades. Possessing a formidable photographic archive, my work has been published in the worlds leading newspapers and magazines, such as LIFE, Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Stern and The Economist. Corporate clients include Red Bull, Walt Disney Attractions, Yellow Shoes Creative Group, International Monetary Fund, McDonalds, Universal Studios, Children's Miracle Network and U.S. State Department. My images have received numerous international awards including the Pictures of the Year, POYi, Best of Photojournalism, Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards for Magazine Photography and the Black & White Spider Awards.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing
