On the field JJ is an All-Star shortstop, but in the club house he’s reigning champion ping pong player! Hardy is often on the prowl, especially [...]

Presented in the photo by David Nevins, founder and president of Nevins & Associates in Baltimore. It was quite the experience to be around the trophy, which came [...]

Last fall I covered the University of Maryland’s attempt at the Sikorsky Prize, a $250,000 reward to anyone who could make a human powered helicopter that could fly to an elevation of 3 meters, stay aloft for 60 [...]

Washingtonian Magazine asked me to take photos for an article on sex trafficking for their June issue, and I was looking forward to the challenge. It’s a strong story, so I wanted the photos to illustrate the narrative while still being strong on their own. Working together with the editorial team at the magazine, I [...]
