I grew up running around the visually pulsing streets of NYC. By the time I was thirteen I decided that the best way to describe myself against this backdrop was with a camera. I received my BA from Sarah Lawrence College where I had the privilege to study under Joel Sternfeld, and Gregory Crewdson. Thereafter, I worked as a freelance photographer specializing in musicians and bands. During that time I photographed many musicians including David Byrne, Outcast, Johnny Cash, Joe Jackson and others. My longing to make something different sent me back to the MFA program for Photography and Related Media at the School of Visual Arts. There, I was able to explore the convergence of traditional photography with digital technology. It’s been an endlessly unfolding and rewarding relationship ever since.
My work has appeared in The New York Times, The London Independent, New York Magazine, “O” the Oprah Magazine, Details, INC and others, as well as having been exhibited both nationally and internationally. My current projects continue to push the boundaries of what we believe to be true, and what is visually possible.
