I am an award-winning photographer and was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and reside in Arlington, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. For more than four years, I interviewed musicians, wrote articles and photographed concerts for Broken Records Magazine. For fifteen years, I was the Publications Manager for a large construction law firm in McLean, Virginia. I hold a Master's Degree and was enrolled in the University of Maryland's Doctoral Program for a decade. I have a Certification in Photography and Emerging Imaging.
I shoot with a full-frame Nikon D4. I also own an infrared Lumix GX5.
