In my early years while growing up just outside of NYC, my father would shoot both stills and super 8mm movies of family events. I knew that there was something incredibly emotional about seeing photographs which had the power to make us laugh or cringe and even force my grandmother rip up a picture, because she didn't like the way she was aging. I was also exposed to seeing issues of Life Magazine and National Geographic and I knew that a camera in the hands of masters, there was magic and power in the photographic image which allowed me to see the world in a very new way.
In high school, they had built a small darkroom and I eagerly got involved with shooting and processing my own film and learning the art of making B&W prints. It wasn't what I saw that fascinated me, but how what I saw, became transformed within a frozen moment of time and point of view.
My first professional photo shoot occured when I was 15 years old. A neighbor knew that I loved shooting photographs and asked me to photograph her wedding. After studying photography as a fine art medium at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, Massachusetts, I immediatley turned to making this my career. I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years, working as a freelance photographer in editorial for magazines and newspapers, direct with corporate communications, advertising and design agencies as well as non profits organizations. Through out, I have pursued my own personal projects and my own artistic vision.
Today, I continue to take on outside projects as well as pursue my own vision.
