I am a photographer who has been shooting and printing for almost twenty years. I received an MFA in photography from Pratt Institiute in 1996 and a Fulbright Travel Grant in 1997. Since then, I have shown my work in galleries across the States and abroad and have done freelance work for American and International companies. Recently, I have focused more on fine art photography, because I decided that I didn't want to use my skills simply to sell products; I wanted to use them to address issues that I find relevant in the modern world. I work exclusively in film, (barring the occasional freelance job and when I'm teaching one-day workshops), and shoot primarily 4x5 and medium format. I am also learning more about the various alternative and historic processes.
