Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

On assignment for Sailing Magazine in Boynton Beach, Florida.


Through my journalism, photojournalism, videography and copy-writing, I strive to inspire my readers to engage in the world around them. I encourage private and corporate clients to rethink how they craft their messages to reach target audiences, create powerful, truthful, compelling messages, conceive and share stories true to the soul of their endeavors.

I am an unapologetic, brazen, tenacious life-long student of Life. There is a story around every corner. No need to contrive or construe them. If we are awake Life dances out to meet us in the strangest... and the most seemingly mundane of places.

 I am a veteran news reporter and photojournalist capable to recognizing the kernel of a good story and navigating unfamiliar territory. I am adept at meeting and developing trust within both engaging and elusive communities, and telling a story efficiently and fluently under both time and logistical pressure and unforeseen challenges.

As a digital asset creator and manager I am experienced in content creation and marketing for people and organizations desiring amplification of their message with meaningful, meaty content and stellar imagery. I am familiar with various digital media platforms, equipment, software and web-based applications. I'm capable of successfully working in rudimentary field locations with minimal tech support.

I am a real life Storyteller and a nomadic freelance creative. When I’m not actively engaged in creating digital asset amazingness, I can most often be found on or in the nearest body of water in my wooden sea kayak, ... or hunting for exotic textiles, ... or consuming honey lavender ice cream, ... or fountain hopping, particularly at night when the light shines through the falling water “just so…”

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
— Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
