Native New Yorker, born and raised with deep roots in the concrete jungle. Although a childhood illness rendered me almost completely deaf, surgery restored most of my hearing. However, this period in my life had a profound impact on the way I view everything around me. Experiencing the world visually led to my love of photography and awe at the beauty in the natural world.
My experience photographing the Lakota wolves was profound and left an indelible impression on my soul. I only hope that my pictures can portray even a fraction of their magnificence. In collaboration with Windows Gallery, a portion of the sales from the Wolves in Winter series will be donated to the Lakota Wolf Preserve in New Jersey.

Artist Statement

Visual art is a manifestation of the whole in a particular, an attempt to frame the chaos. I strive to create images that penetrate through walls of enculturation and artificially constructed otherness. The beautiful is recognized viscerally; feelings need no verbal explanation. I want to strip the cultural, the acquired, the imposed and reveal the essential that remains. Nudity divulges secrets, and a portrait is merely a nude focused on the face. Faces protrude from our collars like plants rising above the ground from their roots. At times they betray sensations of the flesh hidden behind the mask of personal adornment. Conversely, a psychic event may be so intense it crosses into the realm of the physical. This intersection fascinates me as an artist. It is in these moments of utmost intensity that we are united.
