Journalist. Photographer. Adventurer. Storyteller. Sharing stories is what I love. Whether it is from the back of a camel trekking across the Sahara or a busy train station in Tokyo, I strive to put my signature — “human touch” — to every story.


I've covered international events ranging from tsunamis to genocides. With 20+ years of experience, I've learned to do it all and to do it on a deadline. It’s a one-stop shop!


Despite extensive travel to more than 100 countries, my favorite spot in the world is "home" in southwest Kansas with my family.


I love learning and constantly update my skills. My official "education" is from University of Missouri - Columbia (MA in journalism) and St. Mary of the Plains College (BA mass communications). See full resume and awards here.
