Personal History

I grew up in Rahway, NJ, the youngest of four children to a middle-class working family. I studied art after high school before pursuing a photography education in Santa Barbara, CA at Brooks Institute of Photography.  After graduating Brooks, I came back to NYC with a dream and a passion for my craft. I opened my studio on 1985 and along the way, got married, had three daughters and moved to the suburbs. Now that my girls are grown, they all pursue artistic careers too. I currently reside in beautiful and conveniently located Dobbs Ferry, NY with my two big dogs. When I am not behind the lens or in front of my computer, you can find me traveling or hiking trails. Feel free to get in touch with me via my contact page or look me up on my various social networking profiles. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to hear from you soon!
