I create unconventional images with traditional photographic practice, always searching for fresh perspectives and interpretations in the interplay of light, subject, and instrument. I'm listening for what wants to be, how the image can accentuate experience, and in provoking a re-evaluation of accepted perception.

In addition to working as an artist, I've freelanced as a commercial photographer in New York City for 21 years creating groundbreaking imagery for a wide variety of internationally known clients, designing and directing hundreds of commercial photography shoots in collaboration with top advertising agencies, art directors, and creative contributors.

This experience allows me to co-create solutions with clients that result in fresh and purposeful objects and images in harmony with the intention of the space.
