As a staff photographer and bureau mangers for Agence France-Presse for over 13 years in Los Angeles and Chicago, and most recently as a contract photographer leading publications along with a stint as the team photographer for a minor league baseball team. I've developed my talent and gained valuable experience as a leader in the field of photography and picture editing. I have worked one on one with reporters. I’ve organized and executed many of AFP’s and Reuter’s coverage plans, for major sporting events and political coverage in the United States, along with International sporting event, including Olympic venues.
Prior to these above current positions, I freelanced for Agence France-Presse in Cleveland, Ohio for 5 years and prior to that, I worked for UPI as a contract photographer also in Ohio.
My competitive edge, high degree of motivation, and ability to cover every event I have been assigned has awarded me recognition by my employer. I have been quickly advanced to positions of greater responsibility throughout my career. After only two years, I was promoted from staff photographer in the Los Angeles bureau to Photo Bureau Manager in the Chicago office of Agence France-Presse.
During my career as a photojournalist, I have won or placed in many national and company run contests for my photographic work.
