I am Joyous, I am Passionate, I am a Storyteller, I document Family Celebrations, I am an Artist, I am a portraitist,

I am a Memory Maker...

 

Today, through my photography I connect with all different people to capture family celebrations, portraits and provide lasting memories of other people's histories that they hold dearly.  

 

I began photographing when I was 6 years old with a kodak 110 camera.  My grandfather was an avid photographer who had a darkroom and I loved to watch an image develop. Growing up in NYC I attended LaGuardia High School, "The Fame School" and that's where I learned how to take, develop and print black and white film.   

 

I went to study art and photography at Washington University in St. Louis where I spent countless happy hours late into the night singing and dancing around in the darkroom while printing and developing images.  Before I graduated I was already photographing Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.

 

After college I Returned home to NYC and got a job as a freelance photographer for the New York Post newspaper.  Working at a newspaper was the biggest on the job training.
