In 1979 I began my life as a commercial photographer in the Boston area working primarily in advertising and corporate accounts. A fire in 2003 destroyed my studio and its contents. Rather than rebuild, I made the decision to teach. I taught at Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts, being a director for most of that time. For the past four years I have spent my time pursuing my own interests in photography. I have been fortunate to receive a Fellowship Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. My work has been part of the New England Photography Biennial, Flash Forward Festival, and a number of galleries exhibitions. In March of 2016, I will be exhibiting a piece from the series "Michael" at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC as part of "The Outwin: American Portraiture Today".
High school prom photos just before the "pose" — these capture the awkwardness of the North American ritual in all of its wholesome teen uncertainty.
