I've been a photojournalism since 1996 sharing my photos almost daily in print or on the web and impacting viewers/readers all over the world has been my work and my labor of love. Working at a newspaper allowed me to meet new people, learning about our community and dealing with the unexpected, never know what was around the corner or what my next assignment would be whether it's a hurricane, death, fire, festival, birth, sporting event, illness, feature, competition or environmental portrait I love being a photojournalist, being prepared to go out and get the best possible photo and being allowed to give my own take on life as I see it.
Here's some examples of my work in past years some won awards, some were shot on film (rememeber that) and others just move me.
