I find the unexpected in the commonplace, creating humanistic images for clients that capture a personal moment in time, with a degree of humor. I also tend to be fascinated by mundane acts, ordinary people- as well as new places and different cultures- especially how they eat, shop, interact, create art, and live their lives.

Working primarily on location, I shoot people- both lifestyle and portraits- for advertising, editorial, corporate, and non-profit organizations, as well as private commissions. I like to travel light, think on my feet, and shoot from my heart.

My book, "SHE'S OUT THERE! The Next Generation of Presidential Candidates" was published in May, 2009 by LifeTime Media.

A long time member of ASMP, I served on the NY board from 2001-2003.

I am also a member of APA (American Photographic Artists- formally Advertising Photographers of America), where I was a National Vice President from 2009 to 2013, after serving on the NY board as Chair and Treasurer. In addition, I am member of PLUS (Picture Licensing Universal System).
