Attracted by bold colors and abstract forms, I am inspired to photograph the world around me. My passion for photography began with my love of travel and my experience of diverse peoples, cultures and landscapes. With that in mind, I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Imaging and Photographic Technology and became skilled in the technical and creative process of digital imaging. After graduating from RIT, I was recruited by the Walt Disney Company to support animated movies and manage a high-end photography studio. After spending several years in California, I decided to return home to New York to work at Canon, empowering world-class photographers, in their renown Explorers of Light Program, to transition their art to the digital era using the latest photographic techniques. Recently, I graduated from the School of Visual Arts with a Masters in Digital Photography. This experience has allowed me to challenge my skills as a photographer and well as develop new skills as a multi-media artist. My recent work “Making the Unconscious Conscious” is a result of this challenge, a metaphorical series of conceptual portraits that reveal deep and hidden emotions.
