Oct 2000Present

Multimedia Artist

Poughkeepsie Journal

Responsible for photographing and making videos of a variety of subjects on a daily basis, from news, to sports, to lifestyles at a daily newspaper. I've initiated numerous photo essays for publication in the Poughkeepsie Journal. As the lone staff photographer at the paper on Saturdays I'm responsible for editing my own work, the work of freelancers. Saturdays I work as the point person for all photographic and video inquiries from the public, other media outlets and all departments at the newspaper. For the past few years I've been contributing to the writing of monthly reports for my immediate supervisor. I'm responsible for managing the inflow of contributed photography to the newspaper, which includes working as a liaison between the public and my supervisor.
