I am originally from Brooklyn. I earned my MFA in Visual Arts from UCSD in 1977. I have lived on both U.S. coasts and in the middle. I've worked as a documentary photographer, an artist's documentation photographer, and a professor. For the past thirty years I have lived in Philadelphia and taught at Drexel University, where I pioneered digital photography experimentation and its inclusion in the curriculum. I've had one-person exhibitions in a variety of commercial and non-profit spaces regionally, nationally and internationally as well as numerous group exhibitions.
