I am a graduate of the University of Iowa School of Art and Art History where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors. I opened my first commercial studio in Manhattan in 1995 and in 2003 with the birth of my first daughter, I sold my apartment in Brooklyn, closed my Manhattan studio, and bought a house in New Jersey. I now work out of my garage studio (see it here), and I rent space in NYC as needed. (Go Studios is my studio of choice) One benefit of technology has been the ability to be mobile and shoot anywhere.
I live with the artist and sociologist, Elizabeth Fleming, our two daughters, a dog, two lizards and some fish. In my spare time I am the photography and digital arts teacher at Newark Academy in New Jersey.
