I've been taking
pictures since I was twelve; I have experience in stills,
film, and video. My current free-lance work centers on documentary
and editorial still photography.
I grew up as an Air Force Brat
and lived in Shreveport, LA, Savannah, GA, Wetzlar & Frankfurt, Germany,
Smyrna, TN. and New Orleans. That whetted my taste for travel.
I shot news for CBS and ABC
affiliate TV stations in Baton Rouge and New Orleans and freelanced for
CBS and CNN. I've taught film and video production at Loyola University
in New Orleans and Northwestern State University of Louisiana.
My main job is digital
conservation of the large photo and document collection at the Cammie G. Henry Research Center at Northwestern
State University of Louisiana
I live in
Natchitoches, Louisiana. It's a pretty town
on the Cane River, near Kisatchie National Forest in
northwest Louisiana. Founded in 1714, it's
the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana
This is where
the El Camino Real begins, and we're only a few miles
from the capitol of Spanish Colonial Texas, Los Adaes.
The area is rich in history, and our population has an
ethnic diversity unusual in the South. This is Louisiana,
but not Cajun Louisiana; people here claim kinship to the
earliest French and Spanish settlers in the region.
