U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez visits Indianapolis

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez during a visit to Indianapolis for the U.S. Department of Labor. The trip included visits to three separate locations in the city, which made for an extremely fast-paced day for me. It really kept me on my toes for the day, but it was a fun experience.

A belated farewell to South Bend

A week ago today, I left my staff photographer job at the South Bend Tribune. I did so to follow my fiancée, Barbara Harrington, who accepted a reporting position at WTIU/WFIU in Bloomington, Ind. Being able to photograph South Bend and Michiana for the past two and a half years was a tremendous experience. From the BCS National Championship Game in Miami to the local horseshoe pitching club, I was given the opportunity to photograph interesting people, places and stories. My favorite part about working at the Tribune was the opportunity to get out of the office and talk with people on assignments. I worked with a newsroom filled with some incredibly talented journalists. I will truly miss it. Leaving a safe staff job was a leap of faith. While I’m sad to leave the South Bend community, I have already felt a newfound jolt of creative energy in Bloomington. I’m not sure what the future holds at this point for me professionally, but I’m excited for the next chapter to begin. Stay tuned.
