People who know my background know that I bleed purple for Northwestern University. I studied there as an undergraduate and got my start in photography at the yearbook, Syllabus, and the Daily Northwestern newspaper. I taught photojournalism to master’s degree students at the Medill School of Journalism. I was also married at Alice Millar Chapel and….well, you get the picture.
So it was with much delight that after photographing a few assignments for the magazine, I was asked to be on the alumni board of the magazine. It’s a great honor for this alum. We recently had an annual meeting where we reviewed back issues of the magazine and the great work that is done by the nimble and talented team of Executive Editor Stephanie Russell, Art Director Christina Senese and Senior Editor Sean Hargadon. We also looked forward with a strategic eye to meeting our readers in areas and channels that most interest them.
Overall I’m delighted to be a part of the magazine and look forward to giving my input on a school whose history I know very well.
Included here are some of my recent assignments from the last couple issues:
