a passion for storytelling equalled only by a passion for people

I whistle while I work. It's not that I have any resemblance to the seven dwarfs–other than premature balding and corrected vision–I simply think they have a sophisticated quality: work hard and keep a good attitude. It's a decision I make and carry into every aspect of my day. Constantly humbled by my profession, I want to produce pieces that allow an audience to empathize or laugh with the face behind the headline. To communicate what that story looks like, sounds like, and feels like. By sharing their moments and learning from my subjects–it’s this unpublishable experience that fulfills me.

Churn Creek Bottom resident Rod Evans stands in the field north of Knighton Road that's being eyed for an entertainment and retail center. For him the choice is deciding "between beautiful agriculture land as opposed to being 92 acres of pavement and buildings." Evans, who lives on the other side of the interstate, is concerned about the effects of increased traffic and new sewer lines. "It's an irreversible process. It will never go back."
