I'm a storyteller, not because I crave fame and success, but because it is the storyteller's privilege to chronicle, to uplift, to labor alongside others. It is the storyteller’s honor to help remember the blood and the mud and the tears and the triumphs that have come before.
I'm currently freelancing from Chicago. It was 2005 when I earned my first newspaper money: $10 for a short profile of a high school swimmer. Since then, I've worked, written and photographed for The Kansas City Star, Ink Magazine, the Good Men Project Magazine, the Columbus (Miss.) Commercial Dispatch, Vox Magazine, the Columbia Missourian and the Joplin Globe.
