Napa Valley Register
Staff photographer for Napa Valley's daily newspaper. In addition to shooting news, features, sports and business profiles, I assimilated myself into the community to find and pursue story ideas, including a semi-regular photo column "Rites of Passage". Worked closely with reporters and editors to identify issues and cover events and to turn stories around quickly for the web. I also spent one shift a week working as assistant to the online editor, helping to upload and manage content for the website and social media, using it as a platform to better integrate and promote photography.
