Positively Aware magazine and Art director Rick Guasco asked me to create a series of portraits for their September+October 2016 issue focusing on Latinos with HIV.

St. Louis Magazine Photography: Last week the USGA hired me to travel to Greenbriar Hills Country Club in Kirkwood Missouri and do an environmental portrait photoshoot with golfer Jayne Watson, who the organization was given a life long achievement award.
