My passion has led me in surprising directions. Years serving the challenging advertising community in NYC shifted dramatically after 9/11 to focusing on personal work I now recognize as the most important work I’ve ever done. The stimulus for me is to engender an idea, see it take shape, often morphing into the unexpected; that and rubbing shoulders with those I’ve met and befriended. Sometimes I use myself as subject, humor is often key and someone’s usually on the move. Mostly, my images are straightforward, but interpretations may vary.
I share a 19th Century farmhouse in Catskill, NY with my gracious wife Anne and son Kyle.

BEFORE 2013: During the few years immediately preceding my first show upstate, I spent time writing, a wonderful and difficult pastime. Before that, my career as a photographer was spent satisfying clients with my problem solving skills and finesse; I enjoyed a long and interesting career.
