Remembering World War II’s fallen

A little about me …

I’ve spent my entire adult life telling stories in one form or another. Starting out as a newspaper reporter covering various University of Georgia sports, I first moved to the web in 2000 with CNNSI.com, one of several employers I’ve managed to outlast as an entity. Whether working in print, online, in photography or video, my goal is to tell you something new — or get you to look at something familiar in a different way.
