That’s me at work in the Umlazi Township, near Durban South Africa, circa 1996.
Squamish Chief reporter Jennifer Thuncher wrote this great profile on me for her ‘About a Local” column, so I thought I would share it here. I was ducking her on this for a while, as I’m actually pretty shy, but she did a great job. I thought it was important to mention some of the PTSD issues I dealt with after my time as a photographer in South Africa. It’s a common issue with journalists, and something that we as a profession tend not to deal wit that well.
