I have been a photographer for over twenty-five years and  hold degrees in photography and art history.

Living in New York has taught me to appreciate cities and the figure in an urban landscape. My images are created spontaneously. While wandering with my camera, I do not speak to the people I photograph. I prefer to record my subjects while they are unaware of my presence and perhaps lost in thought or activity. Often I am attracted to a body pose or facial expression that seems to tell a story as my camera captures a fleeting observation before it is gone forever. Frequently I am drawn to a scene with strong geometric patterns which provides an intriguing frame for the people passing through. My work is perhaps influenced by my love of film and theater as my eye seeks a challenging, rhythmic, continuously changing landscape often full of surprising elements.
