My childhood was filled with the richness of my family’s art, aesthetic design and music. I became fascinated with the camera and pursued my passion attending the Ohio Institute of Photography, graduating with a commercial degree. I continued my studies in fine art photography at the Columbus College of Art And Design and The Maine Photographic Workshops. I managed a commercial studio in Boston, which expanded my knowledge of graphic design, styling, production, advertising and marketing. Portraits, photojournalism and fine art are the genres that I engaged in. Fine art has become the primary focus of my work in this current phase of my career. It is the design elements of commonplace items and the intrigue of organic life forms that enthuse me. I utilize my technical expertise and artful visualization of style and composition to complete an image. My aspiration is to create an aspect of intrigue within my photography.
