"All art is a vision penetrating the illusions of reality."  -Ansel Adams



The past...

I was born in Cortland, New York, a suburb of Syracuse. All of my life I've wanted to be an artist.

In high school I took every art class that was offered and during my senior year I taught art at the fifth and sixth grade level at one of the local elementary schools.

In college, I've studied everything from graphic design, computer graphics, sculpture, printmaking, painting and eventually photography.

I've worked as a professional photographer, studio manager and graphic designer.

The present...

I now live in Rochester, New York and make my living as a digital printer in the education field, as well as a freelance photographer and graphic designer.

The future...

is a mystery.
