A.J.’s career spans from swimming with a sea turtle in the National Aquarium, to filming exclusive interviews with President Obama in the Map Room of the White House.
His work covering politics and features has been recognized five times by the White House News Photographers Association, and twice by Pictures of the Year International. His dispatches from the aftermath of a mass shooting in Arizona that wounded U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords was awarded the National Edward R. Murrow Award.
A.J’s work has also been awarded by the Capitol region Emmys, the College Photographer of the Year competition and the Society of Professional Journalists. When not behind a camera, laptop, or phone, A.J. is likely somewhere in the woods ignoring all three of those things.
