A look back at some of the assignments and images that I took in 2019.
2019 began a little early as I traveled with Team Rubicon to Atlanta, GA to document their athletes as they took part in the 24 hour World's Toughest Mudder. At the end of the day, I had traveled nearly 22 miles on foot carrying my gear walking alongside these amazing athletes. This is one of the final images of the event as they banded together approaching the finish line carrying flags and plenty of mud.

I spent an entire week with Troy and other crews as they worked to help local home and business owners in the Florida Panhandle. Over 1,200 volunteers from Team Rubicon took part in the relief efforts that provided $2,637,361 in labor value and cost-savings to the local communities.
