I guess I was born with ink in my blood, since both my parents were journalists early in their careers. I started my first newspaper in sixth grade, a rag that I sold for 2 cents per copy. I bought a pet skunk with the profits.
I graduated with a photojournalism degree in 1983, and worked at newspapers in Kentucky and Virginia. When the State Arboretum needed a PR person, I saw the opportunity to combine my love of the outdoors with my writing, editing, and photography experience.
I've been at it full time since 1997, but still find time for adventures and a few freelance assignments from time to time.
Currently I am available for select photo assignments I feel will enhance my portfolio and add to my experience.
