I was born in 1953 and grew up in Fairfield, Connecticut. I majored in psychology at U. of Connecticut and graduated in 1976, when I moved to Boston to work on my Masters in mental health counseling at Northeastern. In the 1980's I became more interested in photography and photographed for Boston Rock magazine, as well as exploring a fine art aspect of my vision. I continued working part-time in mental health, and landed a stringer position in 1990 at Community Newspapers, which is now the Metrowest Daily News.
I met my future wife in 1994. We married and had 2 boys, and a number of cats and dogs. We moved to Maine in 2000, and returned to Massachusetts in September of 2010, with the same 2 boys, albeit older, and with 3 different dogs and a cat.
I have been involved in group shows, including the Bromfield Gallery in 1994, as well as solo shows, the most recent at Trinket and Fern in Portland, Maine, during the summer of 2010. Other shows I have been in 2010: the Woodshed Gallery, Fountain Street Fine Art (Framingham), Orange Dot (London), and Nave Gallery (Somerville). So far in 2011 I have been in the Zullo Gallery annual show, Gallery Seven group show (Landscapes), Cultural Arts Alliance of Hopkinton group show (On the Edge), and a 4-person photography show at Woodshed Gallery, Franklin.
I presently am an iPhoneographer, creating all my images using apps on the phone and iPad. I still use film cameras on occasion, specifically plastic cameras and pinhole cameras. I do my own printing on an Epson Pro 4900 and use archival papers.
