I was first introduced to the art of photography while studying printmaking as a freshman in high school. This is where my love of photography began.
While some of my work involves capturing the beauty of nature in the surrounding areas where I live in New York’s Hudson Valley, I am perhaps most intrigued by visiting places around the globe that offer a different perspective.
By far the most influential person in my work has been Ansel Adams, from his modest and moralistic lifestyle to his advocacy for environmentalism. His distinguished body of work contributed to a deep desire in me to travel out west and beyond. I find his important efforts in preserving wilderness, and his assistance to the Sierra Club in securing the designation of two national parks, most admirable.
Most recently, my work was selected to be part of a group show at the Arts Society of Kingston, New York, where Hannah Frieser, the Executive Director for the Center for Photography at Woodstock, was the guest juror.
I am also available for freelance photo retouching services.
