I am an award-winning professional photographer whose career spans 22 years and counting. I began my career as a photojournalist working in New England. Published worldwide, some of my publication credits include: The Associated Press, Boston Herald, Connecticut Post, Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod View Magazine, National Geographic Traveler Magazine, New Haven Register, Sojourns Travel Magazine, and USA Today to name just a few. In 2003 I was awarded the New England Press Association’s Photographer of the Year Award, an award presented to me for my photojournalist work throughout the entire calendar year.
A digital photography pioneer, I helped bring the first digital cameras to the Connecticut Post Newspaper in the late 1990’s. In addition I assisted with the implementation and training of the photo staff in the use of digital cameras and equipment at the Cape Cod Times Newspaper in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Throughout my photojournalistic career I had the opportunity to photograph Presidents, celebrities, professional athletes and sporting events, as well as local news and events.
Since 2003 I have been selling my artwork at fine art festivals first in New England and now currently throughout the greater Southwest. In 2006, when I moved to Arizona, I left my career as a photojournalist behind and have since been a full-time artist. I exhibit in the finest juried art festivals in CA, CO, AZ, NM, OK, UT, WY, and TX.
Rather than rely on simply what the camera captures, I enhance each of my photos in my digital darkroom to bring back out and share with the viewer what I personally saw and experienced. It is this personal touch, vision, and unique style that truly separates my work in the photography field.
Since becoming a full-time artist, I have acquired collectors worldwide. I have also been interviewed numerous times on TV, in print, and online. I currently live full-time in my RV traveling, photographing, exhibiting and teaching workshops throughout the Southwest.
