Because every story is unique, I regularly ask, “How is this story best told?” The tools, media and platforms available today offer unprecedented possibilities.
While working as a newspaper photojournalist, I discovered a photo of a bird could come to life if the bird’s song was heard with it. This led me to audio slideshows, video storytelling and eventually a position at EAA in 2007.
As a multimedia journalist, I now document the aviation lifestyle and share stories about people who are enjoying personal flight. In 2009, I became a pilot myself and documented my flight training with in-cockpit cameras and a video blog.
Regardless of the medium—be it words, photos or video—being trusted with a person’s story is an honor I take to heart and one that motivates me to keep learning.
