Well, it's been over a year since I've updated my blog. A few things have changed since then.
I took a small hiatus (sort of) from journalism and found myself working a full time job with mediocre pay and even less appreciation. I was making imagery in an industry I really thought I'd enjoy and perhaps I would've. If I would've had the support I thought I was going to get.
So after a falling out, I've been back in the journalism world and it's great.
I'm up near Flint these days, and covering stories there, mainly for FlintSide, a small, online magazine that is hyper-focused on the community. Which is just what I need/want.
The biggest change is that I'm not only shooting, but writing as well. It's a massive challenge for me, but there are definite benefits of writing my own stories. Among those, becoming a better shooter because I'm not just looking for stills, but for stories.

In addition to that work, my lady and I are still kickin' it, we recently adopted a dog and I retired the VW.
All-in-all, things are great and I'm really excited to continue working in Flint and telling the stories of the folks in the city.
This is Oliver. He's eight. And a great dog.
