If you live in West Michigan, chances are you've seen my work during my career in newspapers, broadcast television, P.R and non profits.
Currently I'm a corporate filmmaker and still photographer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan working as the Director of Creative Services at Make-A-Wish Michigan. I shoot and produce internal and external videos for the state-wide chapter, photography, manage social media and project planning.
I'm fortunate I picked a career that I love, working for years in the newspaper and television industries as a photojournalist. I've built an excellent reputation creating photos and video that are visually compelling; skilled at gathering information, translating moments into storytelling images.
My career has been split between still photography and videography. As a still-photographer I’ve worked on-location covering a diverse range of assignments including newspaper + magazine work, annual reports, executive and environmental portraits, photojournalism, advertising, marketing, and web content. On the video side, I’ve created films for business and nonprofit organizations.
