"An old friend gave me a Polaroid camera. I started shooting my model friends and taking portraits during my travels as a model. When I returned to NYC, one of the images ended up in an Upper East Side gallery. I continued showing in galleries and started selling my fine art to private collectors. What started as snapping Polaroids of friends quickly evolved into a second career shooting portraits for magazines and taking me to the far reaches of the world such as Morocco and Peru to shoot medical missions for children."
