I have taken photos since childhood -- starting first with a Brownie and then a Polaroid camera given to me by my brother. In high school, I purchased my first SLR, a Minolta SRT 101, and loved exploring photography with my father. My true passion started when I switched to digital photography -- inspired by the ability to play and see instant results --- and through a 365 project I undertook in 2012-2013 which changed the way I see the world. I live in Brooklyn and am particularly drawn to photographing the many aspects of the diverse, ever changing city - especially my own neighborhood.
When I am taking photographs, I am truly in the moment, become totally immersed in capturing the moment. Photography has helped me to literally open my eyes see the world around me. I love the challenge of opening myself up and continuing to learn and grow creatively.
