I have always been drawn to the photograph. First, as an appreciation of big wonderful coffee table books with beautiful photos that could momentarily transport me to another place, time or elicit an emotional response unlike anything else. Now I explore those impressions within the execution of my own work.

I am a Philadelphia native with a diverse background and a love for travel and new experiences while, also appreciating the comforts of home. I have lived abroad and have experience in education, social work and community development, all of which directly influence how I see and experience the world.

I photograph with an 8x10, 4x5 and a Hasselblad through vintage lenses. All film cameras, except for my 'sketch book', which is an iphone.
