I became interested in photography and photojournalism while serving in the Army. I'm not sure there was ever a time or place I didn't carry a camera, and I have the boxes of negatives to prove it. From '92 to '94, i attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduating with an Associate Degree. In 1997, i started as an undergraduate at Ohio University where I met my wife, Heather. After graduating in 2000, my first job was at the Gazette Newspapers in Prince Georges County, Maryland, just outside Washington D.C. I started at the Daily Press in Feburary 2003.
