I received my first camera at the age of 16 and began photographing the neighborhoods in New York City where I lived. While attending college at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, I pursued my passion and worked as a photo-journalist for the Daily Cardinal and as a stringer for the Associated Press.
Moving to Los Angeles a decade later, I began a 20-year career at American Broadcasting Company working in television production on programs such as Good Morning America, Wide World of Sports, and ABC News, just to name just a few. I received a Network Emmy Award for my work on the Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, and the ABC Recognition Award for outstanding achievement in broadcast operations. The knowledge, skills and values I acquired over that period of time were immeasurable, and have helped guide my work to this day.
In my photography, I try to capture moments in time that reflect a level of authenticity for me and hopefully for others who view them. I'm drawn to the the chaotic, the serene, the paradoxical, but know that regardless of my effort, so much is left to chance.
I live and work in Los Angeles and volunteer my time on documentary and social awareness projects.
