"Those who don't remember the past are doomed to repeat it" -George Santayana I like telling stories with my camera as a documentary photographer recording past and current history through my lens. The things I choose to record/ design are of a time not so long ago, in the lives of African Americans whether on a plantation, "getting religion" on a Sunday morning, or just a day in the life of. My parents grew up on a plantation and I am the first generation not to. This history has influenced my outlook on life, and I want to capture these frames of time in the hope of leaving a legacy for future generations. I do what I do because I love uplifting people. I love to give back to the community. I want to encourage others to do the same. I support my community; I push myself to be the best and I don't give up. I received my BA from Dartmouth College in 1989 and my MA from Wheaton College in 1991. I received an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Communication Media from Bossier Parish Community College in 2021.
