Artist Statement

I grew-up in Scarsdale, NY, attended The School of the Boston Museum of Fine Art where I majored in photo lithography. Also studied with Knox Martin at the Scarsdale Studio Workshop. In the early 70s was involved with the burgeoning underground video movement in New York City. Displaying works at Global Village, The Kitchen and working with the WNET experimental workshop. I worked as Manager/Producer for the Media/Graphics/Print Department of Save the Children, as a photojournalist and commercial producer for WTNH 8, New Haven and freelancer for News 12 Westchester and PATCH. Formed my own production company, InHouse Video in 1988. Although the bulk of my work is in the commercial arena, I still work in the documentary, journalistic and creative editing forms. After 18 years in Connecticut, I moved to The Peekskill Art Lofts in 2002  and  most recently produced for a syndicated sports magazine show airing in 63 million homes and  won a Telly Award for the project. I have also produced several nationally aired TV and Radio commercials during this time. I am currently Exec. Producer of the Peekskill Jazz & Blues Festival.
