As a multiple award-winning photojournalist in Virginia and Florida, and a National Newspaper Association first place award recipient, I have over 30 years of experience in the field of multimedia journalism at its finest.
For over twenty years I have been a well-respected visual journalist here in the Tampa bay area as a photographic artist for The Tampa Tribune, tbo.com, WFLA News Channel 8, and now my own company, Focus From The Heart, photographic art.
Throughout my career, my photographs have appeared in national publications including TIME Magazine, National Geographic Travel Guide, LIFE A Year in Pictures and The Associated Press.
My love of photography began when I was just five years old - the day that I found my mother's Kodak Brownie camera for the first time! It is my love for people and my love of photographic art, as seen through the eyes of my heart, that come together to bring passion to my work as a lifestyles photographic artist.
