My family and I swam up here to Asheville from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Now I’ve entered a new phase of my photography career after 20 years as a photo staffer at the New Orleans Times-Picayune. I miss the excitement of Mardi Gras, Superbowl and Jazz Festival but enjoy taking on the challenge of starting my own business and being my own boss. I’ll be keeping in touch, letting you know what I’m up to with my photography as I take on magazine assignments and weddings in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
