I am a NY City native who relocated around the U.S. a few times, now living happily in Simsbury Connecticut. When I was eleven, I became hooked on photography while experimenting with a Kodak 126 Instamatic camera. I had taken some color snapshots of trees silhouetted at sunset after a winter storm. Being able to capture the mood of the colorful sunset and ice-covered trees struck a chord and compelled me to go further with photography. Soon I was using a 35mm camera. I set up a darkroom in my parents’ boiler room and started printing in black and white. In high school I interned as an assistant to a professional photographer in Manhattan. Throughout college, then alongside my corporate technology/financial career, I always continued to take photos. Along the way, I've been fortunate to have my work shown in many places. Exhibiting gives me a chance to communicate what I see in the world around me. I then enjoy listening to what you tell me you see in that same shot or what it reminds you of. It begins a “visual conversation” which expands creativity for all of us.
