2014 has been an eventful and inspirational year. It has also been another year marked by change and departure in the news industry that I love. Today I join a growing list of departures from The Des Moines Register newsroom. On Monday I’ll embark on the next chapter of my career. I’ve accepted the opportunity to work as photographer and multimedia producer at Iowa State University. I’m excited and humbled to have the opportunity to tell the stories of my alma mater.
I’ve spent a decade at the Register and have loved just about every minute of it. I’ve worked with incredibly talented colleagues. I’ve met countless amazing Iowans. I’ve been honored to tell their stories. My experience as a visual journalist has, and will continue to, shape my outlook on life. I’m thankful for time well spent… It’s been a privilege.
My newsroom now shifts to the beautiful campus of Iowa State and the global reach of its students, faculty and research. More stories to be told, shared.
