New York, NY, USA
Born in Queens and raised in Long Island, I bring decades of multifaceted global and artistic experience to my work. Having spent years as a photojournalist around the world, my exposure to diverse cultures and peoples influences the sense of humanity I bring to each project. With a cinematic perspective, I strive to capture a specific moment within a greater story in my current portraits, as I did with my photojournalism. Coming from a foundation of fine art studies, I value the ability to exercise personal direction, establishing a balance between my own vision and the subject’s unique context. While my shoots are planned in advance, I recognize the power of the unknown with each assignment, never restricting myself from spontaneous changes and new ideas. My pieces are influenced also by my nature as a wanderer, informing my visual aesthetic and ability to discover what to some remains unseen.
