Although my background is in education on a graduate level, photography has always interested me from the time I was a teenager. I grew up with a father who had a darkroom and a spirit for adventure.
I have been fortunate to study with award winning photographers such as Jay Maisel, Vincent Versace, Arthur Meyerson, Dana Allen, and Seth Resnick, which has deepened my appreciation and skill in photography.
The qualities that attract me in photography usually have a graphic composition or linear component. Color plays a large role in the way I see. For me, a picture is an everlasting moment in time to be savored, because moments are all we have.
