It’s no secret that I introduce myself as an adventure photographer and writer, but I have long wrestled with the idea of simply calling myself a storyteller. I have always been inspired by magazine articles of outlandish tales of true adventure. It was with that in mind that I enrolled in journalism school, planning to become a full-time writer.

For a time, I did just that, pitching and landing freelance assignments from newspapers, magazines, and websites. Along the way, I discovered photography and my focus shifted, but I still accept plenty of writing assignments each year. I am also working hard to combine both my writing and photography to tell more compelling stories. New projects are around the corner!

Apologies that not all of these articles are currently available online.
