I am a photographer based in New York City specializing in portraiture.  Initially I pursued formal training as a classical pianist.  Since childhood though I have been influenced by the visual arts as well, finding outlets through drawing and painting. 

Over the years I have fused these interests and experiences together in the form of photography.  During this process, I sought to develop skills in the medium through classes at the International Center of Photography in New York City as well as through continuous experimentation and personal projects. 

For me, photography is a vehicle for creating art, a way to connect with and learn from others.
