Born and raised in Brooklyn NY in the generation preceding the digital image revolution, I continue the practice of film photography with traditional wet darkroom processes. Currently, I manage digital image production processes at an in-house ad agency. 

A number of personal fine art photography projects include "Harlem Nocturnal", "Coney Island House", and "10 in 60". Though a graduate of Pratt Institute with a BFA in photography, I have been a student of photography since my early teens. Tutored in darkroom techniques by a mentor, I continue to dedicate the majority of my artisitic time to the art of the black and white print.
