Photography Bio
Work Experience
Awards + Recognition



I started making photographs around 1970, first in grade school, then at Andover (Phillips Academy), Boston University, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Some of the teachers I’ve had include Gordon “Diz” Bensley, David Hanson, Carl Chiarenza, Barry Gerson, Gary Metz, Wendy Snyder MacNeil, and Paul Krot as well as crits with John Baldessari. Since the 1980’s I’ve worked off and on as a commercial and fine art photographer as well as a designer of electronic media.

Early on I experimented with a variety of films, techniques, and processes including B+W and color negatives and transparencies, color infrared, alternative processes, 4 color separations and offset printing, photo-silkscreen, multiple exposures, and audio-visual installations as well as cameras such as a Diana camera, Nikon 35mm, Canon super 8mm, Bolex 16mm, Marron Carrel 35 & 70mm animation cameras, Hasselblad 120mm, 4×5 & 8×10 view cameras, and a Sony RX100.

Presently I use an iPhone 8, sometimes re-working the images with Photoshop. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to experiment with the slower, more rigorous optical/chemical techniques before using the easier digital processes.

The work on this site includes experimental imagery to straight photographs of what I hope speaks most clearly. Sometimes simple representations to more emblematic collages – looking to spark a communal feeling and signify a deeper understanding of the world we live in.
