My photography is included in numerous private and museum/institutional collections in Cleveland and throughout the country, as well as internationally. Currently, I am one of the directors and founders of the Cleveland Photo Fest, established in 2019. I am also co-curator of Prama Artspace and LIVE Publishing Gallery. I graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art, with a BFA, and at the School of Visual Arts NYC, earning my MFA. I was an art/photography professor in New Orleans for seven years, and affiliated with the New Orleans Photo Alliance & PhotoNOLA Festival of Photography, which inspired me to start up the Cleveland Photo Festival, established 2019. We, at the Cleveland Photo Festival, facilitate the appreciation for photography, as well as offer opportunities for local and international photographers to be showcased in Cleveland, and also creating family friendly events & learning experiences, for all, in our diverse community.
