My career in journalism began in Cali, Colombia, in 1974, as a photographer for the Cali Chronicle, an English-language weekly for the expatriate community. My client list expanded to include the American Women's Club, the Club Campestre, and Fidel Castro's exiled Minister of Propaganda. Within a few years I was also taking stock photos for textbooks and producing text/photo packages for GeoMundo, a magazine produced in Miami and distributed throughout Latin America. I returned to the United States in 1981 and began working for a weekly newspaper in Hoboken, New Jersey. After graduating from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism I worked at the Hudson Dispatch in New Jersey, and the Waterbury Republican-American and the New Haven Register in Connecticut. Throughout this time I continued freelancing and my photos and articles have appeared on three continents and in newspapers including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
