Hello, and welcome. Thank you for reading.
I am a professional photographer documenting the mission and relief work around the world for the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, a Christian protestant denomination based in St. Louis with parishes around the United States of America and church partners around the world.
Before serving the Church, I worked as staff photographer at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach, and The Stuart News in Stuart, Fla. Pictures of the Year International, Joop Swart Masterclass of World Press Photo, the Southern Short Course in Photography, the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, the Florida Press Club, the Society of Professional Journalists and others have recognized my work.
I’m also a lover of art, classical music, cuisine, the history of photography and tea.
Thank you again for visiting.
