I began photographing with a Brownie Camera when I was just 8 years old. For the last 50 years I can’t remember when I didn’t have a camera in my hand. Deep inside I knew that Accounting and IT were not fulfilling but it did pay the bills. I started studying at SVA and ICP in the evenings while working full time to formalize my craft with some wonderful mentors like Algis Balsys and Jerry Vezzuso. My photography was born on the streets of New York and in the documentary projects and environmental portraits of interesting people who gave me their images. If there is anything I want to do with my retirement it is to share my images with as many people as possible and continue to grow my body of work.
