He studied Fine Arts at Pratt Institute, Photography at City College and the mentors in his early career were Robert Frank, Louis Stettner and Mel Rosenthal. He attended the Missouri Photo Workshop, where he was awarded the Bill and Duane Honorary Director's Scholarship.

He has also photographed in Japan and other parts of Asia, as well as in Mexico and Haiti. Currently, he is working on projects documenting life in the United States, covering issues such as people affected by the economy, immigration and other social issues.

Recently, he has also extensively covered the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, on the Rockaways and Staten Island.
