You may have heard that we have had bad flooding in parts of Iowa this Spring. I am very fortunate, I only had a few puddles in my basement. Some neighbors have reported having several feet of water in their homes.

About me

I have had a camera in my hand ever since I can remember. I was always the kid that wanted to trot down to the scene of the crime, or truck accident, or whatever, and get the images that would document that event for posterity. I guess its no surprise that I am naturally drawn to editorial and journalistic photography!
