I am a wire photojournalist with ZUMA Press. My photojournalism journey began Memorial Day 2014. I specialize in Major League sports, the New York City ballet and performing arts companies, civic events, and children's education programs. I am deeply committed to compassion and peace through photography, and hope to one day get assignments to humanitarian and crisis zones. Sports is to train myself for the physical stamina, speed and accuracy needed for the difficult war zones; and I am very grateful to the ballet dancers and choreographers - their artistry gave me the chance to write as a journalist for magazine publications and to get published in New York City. Meeting people from all walks of life, experiencing their struggles, their journey is what I now photograph and write for.... Finally, I am deeply grateful to the editors who have inspired and mentored me through this challenging journey. It has been a great honor to learn from them, and I am indebted to all! My final thanks is to the Good Lord, who leads me to greater compassion and to hold close the ways of love above everything.
