I am the Deputy Managing Editor of Photography for the Deseret News and KSL 5 Television News, the NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City.
Originally from Lansing Michigan, I started my career in 1986 with the Lansing State Journal as part-time photojournalist. While attending Lansing Community College and later studying photojournalism at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, I worked for several newspapers around the country as an intern, including the Bay City Times, the Citizen Patriot in Jackson, MI., Phoenix (Arizona) Gazette, and the Commercial Appeal in Memphis, Tennessee.
In 1993, after finishing my studies WKU, my wife and I moved out to Ogden Utah where I began my first full-time job as a staff photojournalist for the Standard-Examiner.
Two years later I took a new job as the Chief Photographer at the Santa Fe New Mexican.
My wife and I grew to love Salt Lake City, so when the city was awarded the 2002 Winter Olympics, we jumped at the Deseret News job offer of a staff photojournalist to return back to Utah in 1997.
In the fall of 2001, I took a new job as the Assistant Photo Editor for the DNews where I remained for the next nine years.
Last September, the Deseret News, KSL TV & Radio News integrated their newsrooms, and in the process, I took on the new responsibility of Dep. Managing Editor for Photography for Deseret News and KSL.
