My Story


Born/Raised in NYC gave me a deep appreciation for culture, language, and quick changing facades. Being in the heart of NYC, the concrete jungle, I sought more open space and more greenery.  Often I'd find myself traveling further upstate - closer to the mountainous areas of NY where I felt my creative energy excite. 

My landscapes - Most of which reflect such need for space, openness, and a feel of endlessness.  Often I'm canvassing the area seeking to capture the feeling of the warm sun, the scent on a passing breeze, the smell of wildflowers, or the sound of crashing waves.

In my portraits - I like to develop a rapport with my subject.  Let’s remove any pretense. Talk and have fun! - Lets create something that is truly you!
