bio Even after seven years as a staff photographer with European Pressphoto Agency (EPA), and 16 years with US News & World Report before that, I’m not my own idea of a photojournalist. I’ve shot assignments in more than 60 countries, had a hanging exhibit at the 2012 Visa Pour L'Image, and written a memoir. I also spent four years as an adjunct professor of photojournalism at George Washington University, and last year was named the 2016 White House News Photographer Association's photographer of the year. And yet I still hate tech talk, and don’t own a flash. I do carry a mic and notebook, however. And often a video camera. I love to write and report my own stories; all the multimedia pieces you see here were made by me alone. As for the rest, I love to teach, to cook, to travel. I have a master’s degree in photojournalism from the University of Missouri, Columbia, and live in Washington, DC, with my wife and two children.
