I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world, working with clients around the world, telling their unique stories in even more unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with many, many talented photographers, directors and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I sure needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion. I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents. I like finding and sharing things I consider beautiful. I am patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic. I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "...making pictures, not just taking them." One thing led to another and now I'm published, winning awards and having my work shown in galleries. Happiness. So here I am. Open for business. And open for any adventure that needs an image or two. Most of the images here are available for purchase as prints up to 24 x 36" in a variety of finishes and framing options.

My dear friend Chef Anthony Goncalves is the creative mastermind behind Restaurant 42 and Bellota in New York. He has started creating a series of ever-changing 11 to 14 course tasting menus inspired by his Iberian heritage to keep his Foodie followers elated. He never ever disappoints and always surprises with his perfectly prepared and inspiring preparations and combinations. I'm not sure which I enjoyed more; being in his kitchen with his phenomenal staff watching them work together so effortlessly or enjoying what they so lovingly prepared. Fortunately, I don't have to choose.
