Born in New York City, but growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey. I became interested in the arts at an early age mainly from my mother who studied painting in NYC. I would follow in her footsteps attending undergraduate studies at her alma mater, The Philadelphia College of Art.
There I eventually discovered a love and passion for photography above all. Later I would attend graduate school at the Rochester Institute of Technology and after finishing school I would return to the Philadelphia area as a teacher. I continue to enjoy instructing and hope to inspire students in that same love and passion I have had for the art of photography.
