Born and raised in the Southeastern burbs of Philadelphia, I have been absorbing art and photography my whole life. My mother is a self-taught artist and my father always had his Petri 35mm camera close by documenting our family. I would impatiently wait days, for his slides or prints to be processed and picked up from the local Fotomat. I would anxiously wait for his monthly issue of Camera Arts magazine to arrive in the mail, spending hours in each publication studying fine art photographers and their work, which instilled my passion and love for black and white photography.
My earliest recollection of taking pictures was in 1977 while on a 3rd grade field trip to Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, in Lancaster, PA. Amazingly, at such a young age, my parents trusted me with their Kodak Instamatic 104 camera loaded with a roll of Kodachrome slide film. I've shared these images in the gallery below.
These early influences and memories, as well as the teachings and critiques from my BFA in Photography, have led me to a love for photography.
A 1992 graduate of Pennsylvania State University earning a BFA in Photography, I currently reside in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place....I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." ~ Elliott Erwitt
