I’ve had the privilege to work in the creative field my entire career and gain extensive experience in all aspects of media. I’ve worked in television; I’ve done major multimedia campaigns for Apple Vacations; I developed Pennsylvania Ballet’s first online e-com- merce presence; I designed and wrote the style guide for the Houston Rockets’ new arena ticketing kiosks and during my time at Aramark, I developed the concepts and led a team of designers in support of major campaigns for Lucas Films and Disney. At Boeing, I designed the award winning Chinook News, a quarterly magazine created for the US Army.
My first paying job, at age 19, was to airbrush gold onto the “XV” of the official Eagles’ team photo after their 1981 appearance in the Super Bowl. This lead to an 18-year stint as a team photographer. Since then, I’ve worked in an amazing field on some incredible assignments and projects. In 2001, I developed the concept for the talent and casting industry’s first online site for Mike Lemon Casting. I’ve had the honor to photograph a president, and was asked to do a formal portrait of John Glenn and Neil Armstrong, the last photo taken of them together before Commander Armstrong’s death, so I guess I am a historian as well.
Recent assignments include photographer for the World Meeting of Families, memorializing Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia. I was also responsible for the launch of Beyond the Fire magazine blog to support first responders. I did a lifestyle photo essay in the December 2015 issue of Real Simple Magazine and in March 2016, I spent a week in Cancun, Mexico shooting a national print campaign for Apple Vacations. I recently contributed a two page photo spread to Frontiers magazine to commemorate the 100th anniversary celebration of The Boeing Company and my work is heavily featured in a recently published book on the history of the Chinook helicopter.
I am the founder of TheHeroKid.com, a free photo service I provide for special kids and first responders who meet amazing challenges in their lives.
I am currently volunteering my time producing a web-based reality show for Justice Rescue. We go into the darkest, most dangerous areas to find abused animals and bring their abusers to justice.
This is one of the greatest times to be working in creative, so many delivery avenues, so much exposure and so much competition. I am confident my diversified expertise and high standards of excellence could help any organization achieve its vision.
As kids we were told there was work and there was play.
Work was what you
had to do and play was what you wanted to do. I am grateful that I get to work at what I want to do… everyday.
It’s a good feeling to do what you love so I guess I’ll keep going
