Born and raised in the outer boroughs of NYC, my mother cleaned houses, and my father drove taxis/limousines. My mother bought me my first Kodak 110 camera when I was six years old. I still keep the first photo album I ever made.
High school years were tough for me, I began to leave school early, and stay out late, the only solace I found was discovering the dark room in my freshman year, though that was not enough. I did not fare well in school, and dropped out.
After acquiring a GED, and attending Community College, I met a girl that re-ignited my passion for photography. I began spending time in the dark room again, and helping those around me with less comprehension of the art.
I transferred colleges, and lost sight of photography once more. It wasn't until a geographic to India, that I began telling people I encountered I was a photographer.
Upon returning to the United States I interned at a commercial photography studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. That was in 2004. Since then, I have assisted countless top commercial photographers spanning Still Life, Fashion, Interiors, and Portraiture.
For the last six years or so, I have been navigating my deep comprehension, both technically, and artistically, to develop my own voice in this ever changing landscape that is commercial photography.
I am proud to offer this body of work to the universe as a representation of my perception of life, and those around me.
