“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Whenever that phrase is uttered, I know I’m in good company because I believe every great story begins with a great image
As a multimedia journalist, I am honored to work for WIBW, reporting on meaningful events with outstanding photography.
I was born in Los Angeles, but raised in Colorado. As a youngster, I puzzled most of my teachers because I was a profound picture-learner.
From the earliest age, photographs and illustrations expressed more than the printed word. As the years progressed, I learned to respect the critical connection between a story and a picture and this led to studies in Mass Communications and Journalism.
I earned a degree from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. As a student, I was inspired by some amazing, gifted professors while I worked in the sports broadcasting department. Comfortable with the camera, I recorded all sorts of sporting events, interviewing coaches whenever possible.
Sports have always been my passion and I’m a loyal fan of the Los Angeles Chargers. That may not make me the most popular guy in Chiefs’ territory but I’m happy to talk sports any day. All day!
History and politics are the only subjects that rival my interests in sports. I enjoy a good debate. In my opinion, our country is best viewed from people in the heartland and I’m proud to call Topeka my home.
