Producer – Camera Work Podcast

1/13 – Current

Camera Work is a podcast discussing the world of a working, professional photographer. I'm proud of the honesty we deliver on Camera Work. You'll hear a lot more about our struggles than our success. We are always looking for guests who are willing to discuss what has worked or not worked in their pursuit of their artistic dream. If you feel you may have something to contribute, please reach out to me! Camera Work can be found on: iTunes: Stitcher: You Tube:

Still Photographer – Calibr

1/10 – Current

I photograph all meetings, seminars and presentations delivered by the Calibr networking group. These meetings feature speakers like Bernard J. Tyson, CEO of Kaiser Permanente, "Decisive" author Dan Heath, "Outhink the Competition" author Kaihan Krippendorff, "Impolite Conversations" author Cora Daniels and many others. I also maintain a database of images for Calibr. The database contains thousands of images, but the images are organized by date and event where they were taken and the leadership of Calibr can instantly access the high resolution file for any image I have taken. I also shoot executive portraits for the Calibr membership.

Photographer for BET's 106 & Park - Independent Contractor – BET Productions

1/11 – 8/13

I photograph every episode of BET's 106 & Park -both backstage and on set. I shoot several hundred shots per episode and these are edited down to around 20 images that appear on the "106 & Park" app for iOS and Droid platforms, as well as It's an intense job -covering the backstage and onstage action of a live TV program and managing so many images each day, but I really do enjoy being there.
