Bio

Photography has always been part of my life. Now after a successful career in advertising as a copywriter, copy director, creative director and agency principal I am devoting my time and drawing on his life’s experiences to telling stories through my photographs.  

Artist Statement

My street photography is a serendipitous view of people in urban environments. I strive to tell a story each time I frame, focus and then release the shutter. I am a fan of the little things, the visual cues such as light, shadow, motion or stillness, form, gesture, expression, color or perspective that add recognition and depth to each image that I make. My goal is always to make elegant and simple photos.
