Hi everyone! A native New Yorker, I grew up in the East Village and lived in the Hell's Kitchen/Clinton neighborhood of Manhattan for over a dozen years. After beginning to study photography formally in high school, I attended Fordham University-College at Lincoln Center, where I majored in Theatre and minored in Photography. Following college I pursued a career as a dancer and actress in New York, while continuing to photograph the city I love and the surrounding countryside. When a chronic knee injury ended my dance career around 1992, I began pursuing photography full-time. While always continuing to photograph the cityscapes, landscapes and still-lifes that originally drew me to photography, for nearly a decade I spent the majority of my time photographing the increasingly popular sport/art of figure-skating. A fan of the sport since high school, I often spent much of September thru May attending one of the many competitions or exhibitions throughout the Eastern U.S.; during this time I was a regular contributor to many skating publications, as well as to event programs and several books on skating. These days I have primarily returned to my first love, general stock photography. I love shooting things that strike me as beautiful or interesting, to share my view of the world with others. Some of my favorite things and places to photograph are Coney Island, Fire Island (off of Long Island), flowers, wildlife and my own hometown, NYC. I sell my work online though several different outlets, including shops on both Zazzle and Cafepress.
