Unlike most of the population there, I actually grew up in the beautiful state of Colorado.
The incredible weather in Colorado allowed me to ride my skateboard or my snowboard almost everyday, documenting the sports with still pictures and video along the way.
During my senior year, I was offered at job at KCNC-TV CBS 4 as a video tape editor. I was immersed in news and devolped a love and appreciation for it. I learned how to edit daily news as well as sports and feature stories.
In August 2006, I was offered a full-time position as a Photojournalist at KUSA-TV 9NEWS. I called 9NEWS my home for over a decade. While there, I honed my craft of shooting, editing, writing and telling the stories of Colorado.
In July of 2016, I sent out on my next great adventure, New York City! I hit the ground running right away as a freelance photojournalist and video editor for WPIX where I covered breaking news in the tri-state area.
It wasn't long before my talents were noticed by the news powerhouse CNN. I joined the elite team of photojournalists in October of 2016 and I have been non-stop traveling around the country covering news, politics, documentaries and special projects.
I'm always looking for the next place to share my creativity, my editorial judgment, and my expertise. I want to continue expanding my skillset and finding new ways to apply my knowledge that I'm learned during my career thus far.
