You will notice, as you peruse through my site, that my three biggest loves are travel/outdoor photography, concert photography and retouching.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and Detroit, so the sights and music of these cities became part of who I am, and led to a fascination with photographing Detroit local bands and other activities around the area. I soon realized that I wanted to make it more than just a hobby.

A photography education and a three week digital course in Florence, Italy stimulated my interest, and made me realize how much I loved being "out and about" capturing the beauty and action that seemed to be everywhere.  

My work has been published in major magazines, local papers, teen novels and The New York Times.

I have been involved for almost 20 years now and have worked for different photography firms in the New York Metro Tri-State Area, where I now reside, honing my skills in photography, Photoshop and other techniques.
