About

I make my living as an assistant fire chief for a suburban Twin Cities fire department - my  passion, however, is photography. A self-taught photographer, I learned to take pictures at a young age using a Pentax camera  my father brought home from Vietnam. I later honed my skills photographing fires throughout the Twin Cities. My first published photo came in 1994, in a national firefighting magazine. Since then, I've  become an accomplished photographer, shooting landscapes, sports and news.


As a freelance photojournalist, I have covered everything from local news stories and high school athletics to national news events and professional sports. I have covered the Winter Olympics, the Final Four and numerous Presidential events, including an assignment in the East Room of the White House. Among others, I have been published the Pioneer Press, the StarTribue, USA Today, Time Magazine, The New York Times and Sports Illustrated.
