The Rhythm in Flint

March 29, 2017

The craziest thing about Flint was that I didn’t even feel unsafe around these buildings. Outside of downtown, there was so rarely anyone else nearby. It’s like being stranded on an island where cars drive by every so often. The only thing that gave me concern was the condition of the building, and whether it would fall in on itself when I happened to be inside of it.

Flint: Standing, Still.

This past weekend I went with a group of UW-Milwaukee journalists to cover the water issues in Flint, Michigan. Water isn’t even when or where the problems started, and isn’t the only concern of the people of Flint.

Spring 2017: Birds

March 19, 2017

Here is our Spring 2017 Birds edition of our quarterly Panorama publication at Schlitz Audubon. Give a read about migratory warblers, why feathers are so special, land improvement projects, and more.

This past weekend I had the good fortune to shoot my first television reporting piece about tintype photographer Margaret Muza. She will be the next Artist in Residence at Milwaukee’s Pfister Hotel. Watch my first video piece here and learn a little about tintype photography.

I’m pleased to relay that some of my photographs were included in a Milwaukee Press Club group award for Best Local News or Feature Website for our LIVE BLOG: Milo Yiannopoulos Visits UW-Milwaukee coverage.
