What does your job entail?
My job primarily entails creating quality photography, receiving and distributing assignments from the campus community, managing/coaching student interns and freelancers, and photo editing and managing the Digital Asset Management system.
Where did you work before CC and what were you doing?
I was working as a photographer at a state university in Nevada, though my background is in metropolitan daily newspapers.
Tell us a little about your background.
Originally, I’m from Maryland, although I’ve lived and worked in the South, Midwest, Northwest, and the West. My biggest photographic influence in the early days was Ernst Haas. I appreciate his clean and precise style. Wikipedia says it better than I can, “Haas bridged the gap between photojournalism and the use of photography as a medium for expression and creativity.” I try to do the same.
What do you like to do when not working?
When I’m not working, I’m planning my next international trip or enjoying movies and Netflix. My most recent trips have been to India, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic.
Wild card: What is something people don’t know about you?
I have taught myself two languages, Spanish and Portuguese, besides the two languages I learned in school [English and Italian].
