I attended School of Visual Arts but left in 1977 to pursue full time work assisting professional photographers. I returned to School of Visual arts as an instructor teaching studio photography in 1983.
In 1976, at age 18, I started producing photographs on assignment for the Village Voice, that year I also had my first NYC solo photography show. I photographed on assignment for New York magazine at age 19, and my first national magazine cover assignments came a year later. By age 21 I had a photo studio in Manhattan.
I continued to produce photographs, mostly still life for advertising and editorial use until 2002, at the end of which I closed my studio and pursued my more personal photography, mostly landscape.
My work has been published many times and has appeared in over 40 exhibitions across the US.
