New York, NY


A native New Yorker, I grew up in the East Village and lived in the Hellís Kitchen/Clinton neighborhood of Manhattan for over a dozen years. After beginning to study photography formally in high school, I attended Fordham University-College at Lincoln Center, where I majored in Theatre and minored in Photography. Following college I pursued a career as a dancer and actress in New York, while continuing to photograph the city I love and the surrounding countryside.

When a chronic knee injury ended my dance career around 1992, I began pursuing photography full-time. While always continuing to photograph the cityscapes, landscapes and still-lifes that originally drew me to photography, for nearly a decade I spent the majority of my time photographing the increasingly popular sport/art of figure-skating. A fan of the sport since high school, I often spent much of September thru May attending one of the many competitions or exhibitions throughout the Eastern U.S.; during this time I was a regular contributor to many skating publications, as well as to event programs and several books on skating. Both my figure-skating and my scenic work has qualified me as a three-time finalist in the annual Photographer's Forum's 'Best of Photography' competition. I've also shown my work in exhibits at the Times Square Lobby Gallery in New York City.

In the early 2000s, with the decline of interest in figure-skating, I returned to my original interests of shooting landscapes, cityscapes, still-lifes and wildlife/animals. These days, in addition to Fine Art America, I sell my work thru two online shops on Zazzle
