I am a founding member of The Redhouse (theredhouse.org) a once full arts center and now mainly a live performance theater in Syracuse, New York. I served there as both gallery director and curator for the first several years of its inception. I was responsible for the overall artistic vision and leadership of visual fine art culminating in dozens of exhibitions including installation, painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed media from emerging, mid-career and professional artists on the local and national level. This was a personally gratifying experience, but I longed to get back to my own work full time. And although I have worked as an inter-disciplinary fine artist in painting and installation for many years, I find photography is the best tool for me to communicate my vision. Consequently, I have been focusing solely on photo work since 2013.
