I specialize primarily in portrait and head shot work, as well as editorial and wedding photography. I'm based in the New York Metro Area, but travel to San Francisco a few times a year and am also available for hire in the SF Bay Area, depending on the specifics. I believe that photography is, above all else, about connection. That when you put the viewfinder to your eye, nothing exists save for you and your subject. I believe that the best efforts are collaborative and that this applies to everything in life, not just photography. I believe that a sense of humor is the most effective shock absorber, and without one your life is gonna be a long, bumpy ride.
