For as long as I can remember, I've had a camera in my hand. I've always loved documenting time with my friends and family, making sure we had pictures to remember our moments together. I realized photography's importance to me after a flood in my childhood home ruined our family pictures, and I no longer had the privilege of looking at images which documented our family before my memories even began.
My first job, at 14, was the counter person at American Pie, our neighborhood pizzeria; next door was Moto Photo - there I would drop off my film at least weekly, excited to see what became of my images. This thrill never ended, even though the process has.
I now shoot digitally, however, my process remains the same. Photography above all is about observation. Capturing and choosing which moments to freeze in time to tell your visual story is art.
In a never ending quest to learn I have acquired a Bachelor of Science degree from Rutgers University’s Business School. As well as a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. My design degree has aided my specialty in providing beautiful collections for your walls, each piece becomes a personal piece of artwork which inspires you day to day.
I have also became certified in Vinyasa Yoga from Yoschi's Body Bodega in NYC, leading me to delve in and learn more about myself. I've come to realize how similar the creative process is to the process of well being. They both cultivate patience and the ability to observe without judgements. Through my experience with yoga and photography I have gained a sensitivity to seeing and capturing what I like to describe as authentic moments of light! It is these authentic moments which are the artwork of our lives.
I want my photographs to mean something to you years down the road, to have them tell your story and to let them remind you of your moments of joy, inspirations, or achievements.
