I am the Deputy Managing Editor of Photography for the Deseret News and KSL 5 Television News, the NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City. Originally from Lansing Michigan, I started my career in 1986 with the Lansing State Journal as part-time photojournalist. While attending Lansing Community College and later studying photojournalism at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, I worked for several newspapers around the country as an intern, including the Bay City Times, the read more n Patriot in Jackson, MI., Phoenix (Arizona) Gazette, and the Commercial Appeal in Memphis, Tennessee. In 1993, after finishing my studies WKU, my wife and I moved out to Ogden Utah where I began my first full-time job as a staff photojournalist for the Standard-Examiner. Two years later I took a new job as the Chief Photographer at the Santa Fe New Mexican. My wife and I grew to love Salt Lake City, so when the city was awarded the 2002 Winter Olympics, we jumped at the Deseret News job offer of a staff photojournalist to return back to Utah in 1997. In the fall of 2001, I took a new job as the Assistant Photo Editor for the DNews where I remained for the next nine years. Last September, the Deseret News, KSL TV & Radio News integrated their newsrooms, and in the process, I took on the new responsibility of Dep. Managing Editor for Photography for Deseret News and KSL.
