Worked for daily newspapers for more than 30 years as a photojournalist, reporter and editor. Was a leader in the conversion to digital photography and desktop publishing for Advance and Booth Newspapers.
After taking a buyout in early 2012 returned to school and now have an M.S. in Communications from Grand Valley State University. Was the top graduate student in the GVSU School of Communications for the 2015-2016 academic year and my multimedia project was honored by the Graduate Dean for Excellence.
I have worked as a part-time adjunct instructor at the Center for New Media at Kalamazoo Valley Community College teaching digital photography and graphic arts.
