Portrait series: Currently, there are two projects I'm working on. One is exploring the cultural ideal of following your dreams into a career and the other is a portrait series utilizing instant film. A third project over the lives of people with autism will never be complete but instead a lifelong pursuit I will add to periodically. Story clips: This includes some of features that have won accolades from the Texas Press Association. Photography: This is my photo portfolio featuring news, sports, and portrait pieces. I have been recognized by the National Newspaper Association, the National Press Photographer Association, as well as, the Texas Press Association.
