I received my photography degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and later taught at Webster University in St. Louis, MO. I have exhibited and published throughout my years in the medium, but in recent years, I have primarily worked with toy cameras. At first these were traditional toy cameras such as Brownie and Holga, but six years ago, I began to buy quirky toy digital cameras on-line to use. The work I have submitted was produced with one of these, a JOCO VX5, produced for a brief time in Singapore. It is definitely quirky and it has become my go-to camera.
