Like a lot of photographers, I started making pictures early. When I was eleven years old I made a photo album for my parents that I called "This is Your Life!" And I have it to this day. But my professional life found me on the other side of the camera. For over twenty years I wrote and directed photo projects for corporate clients including companies from Apple Computer to Visa International, to the US military and dozens in between.

I learned so much from Chris Corradino of The New York Institute of Photography, from my mentorship with Kirsten Lewis,
