I learned the visual language of images from a young age. My parents frequently brought my sister and me to the legendary galleries and museums of Manhattan during their heyday in the 60's and 70's.
Inspired by this exposure and by the cultural explosion of imagery and art of my youth, I chose to study the history of French photography and film at UC Berkeley. Upon graduation, I tried to ply my trade in San Francisco in the mid 90's, to find that, in order to further explore this visual language, I needed some technical experience. This brought me to study Commercial Photography at Brooks Institute, where I discovered my love of capturing the human spirit; portraiture.
I love environmental portraiture, people - especially children and families.
I love being outside in people's favorite places - beaches, gardens, deserts, mountains, forests, plains, trees, rocks, sky, sea, streams, parks, paths, clouds, fog, rain - at play or at work - I love it all!
