I’m a native New Yorker, born and bred- I’ve always had a passion and fascination for the amazing array of people  who live , work , create, celebrate and often suffer in this sprawling metropolis.

Photography is a means of narrowing my vision for just a split second on a particular facet of our lives here. Within the frame of the camera, I can  extract one moment from this chaos and through that solitary moment, the viewer  can infer a lifetime.

I’ve never limited my life to just taking pictures. I’m also a professional musician and an English pronunciation teacher -these disciplines all have the common thread of expression and collaboration running through them.

I work with people from all walks of life,  from all over the world on a daily basis. It’s something I truly love doing.

I think that as long as New York continues to attract and engender unique and creative individuals, I will remain here.
