I was born and raised in The Bronx, NYC.
My work as a photographer began when I covered antiwar movement
protests in Washington, DC and Albany in the late sixties as a stringer
for UPI. I worked for a daily newspaper for a year and then spent the
next two years travelling throughout the U.S. and Europe. When I came
back I worked in a custom processing photo lab. Following that I worked
as an assistant in the photo studio of a large industrial corporation.
In 1978 I opened my own studio. My emphasis over the years has been
industrial, commercial and portraits. But the best part of my work has
been the opportunity to meet unique, interesting people, and to see the
beauty that nature shares with us.
