Lifestyle and advertising photographer based in Boston and New York City.
I was born in Farmington, CT three months shy of the 80s. I share a birthday (and common thread) with a few notable people: Caravaggio (master of chiaroscuro), Ed Sullivan (variety, good hair), Bam Margera (great balance) and Mira Sorvino (long legs). I am fluid in the art of creative solutions, which comes in handy on set. When I was five, my parents enticed me and my older brother to pick up our yard by offering ten cents a stick. My older brother gathered an impressive pile but the financial reward was mine; I had broken all of my sticks into multiple pieces. Brilliant. With my earnings, I bought a pogo ball and a polaroid camera.
Trained as a behavioral scientist and design researcher, I am keenly aware of how people live, work and play in space. With photography, I have taken the next step by creating environments that evoke emotions and tell poignant stories about people.
