“This is it” I said to myself when I looked through my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic x-15F I received for my birthday in the early 1980’s. My mother and I were visiting her friend, also a photographer, at her home in New York. I started photographing friends in casual sessions and learning the craft and fundamentals as a student of photography in classes offered at my high school.
While attending Georgetown University in Washington DC in the late 1980’s and early 90’s, I took classes at Glen Echo Park’s Photoworks division and at the Smithsonian Institute. After moving to New York in 1994, I pursued a variety of classes at New York City’s International Center of Photography.
Over the years, in addition to my own photo efforts, I have worked as a photo researcher and editor with various magazines and photo stock agencies, serving as Associate Photo Editor at both Us Weekly and Allure magazines and later as Group Photo Editor for Hearst Books/Sterling Publishing.
I am currently based out of Miami and available for bookings.
