Thanks for visiting.
I am a dad, a film editor, photographer and multimedia producer. I'm currently a graduate student studying documentary film and photojournalism at the Missouri School of Journalism.
From 2006-11, I was a reporter at The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., where I wrote about bats and balls and shot pictures and video. Later, I joined Yahoo! Sports' Rivals.com product, covering college sports as a photojournalist and video producer. In 2013-14 I was a visiting assistant professor and the Knight Foundation Visiting Multimedia Editor at the Missouri School of Journalism.
I grew up in Kentucky on baseball cards, Seinfeld and Super Mario Brothers. I'm a 2005 graduate of the University of Kentucky School of Journalism. During college I interned as a reporter at The Cincinnati Post, The Paducah Sun and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I was a member of the Washington Center for Politics and Journalism in 2006 in Washington, D.C. When I was living in the capital, I had the unique pleasure of meeting and interviewing all three major players in the 2008 presidential campaign -- Barack Obama, John McCain and Hillary Clinton -- before they declared their candidacies when access was freer. That’s a great internship, by the way, and if you are studying journalism, consider the program to gain experience.
