What is life without a purpose, what is purpose without love?
I'm a photojournalist in the grand state of MI, (read all about my adventures here).
I do loud music, meaningful art, and crazy adventure

The last time I saw him, he was standing on my porch with his skateboard, asking for my son, said Lisa Young, a volunteer for the exhibit Eyes Wide Open.  Her sons friend, Jordan Good, is one of 216 men and women from Michigan who have been killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars since 2001.  His wife is a widow; his daughter an orphan.

This is the best thing I’ve seen all week.

This week, I feel like I can finally see that I’m improving.  Every once and a while I don’t feel like my photos look like a student shot them, which is encouraging. I wrote my first story and I realized that I do like writing.  

This internship has stretched me in a lot of ways as a journalist and my only fear at this point is that I stop growing.  

This weekend, other than a basketball assignment, I’ll be going to the Michigan Press Photographer’s Association.  It’s the first contest I’ve entered my work into and I’m a little nervous to be critiqued by someone I don’t know personally, but I’m sure it will be an awesome learning experience (and it wouldn’t be so bad if I placed, either).

I met Keegan today, a 17-year-old who is going a day without shoes with the goal of sending 365 shoes to kids in Swaziland so that they can go to school.
