I have been photographing for over 35 years. I became more motivated to learn more about it in 1974, after the birth of my son. I was living in Manhattan at the time and bought an Olympus OM1 SLR film camera. I started by taking black and white portraits of my son, as well as friends, family and things around the neighborhood. I later enrolled in a couple of Photography classes at the School of Visual Arts and studied black and white photography, as well as darkroom processing of film.

My son is now grown and I also have a daughter, three beautiful granddaughters and a grandson, who are a delight to photograph. In recent years, my photography has been strictly digital.

I've had pictures published in local newspapers and Town of Hempstead publications including an advertisement, and several times in the TOH calendar.

I've had pictures exhibited in Foto Foto gallery in Huntington, NY, the African American Museum , the Long Island Museum and Art-trium in Melville, NY.. I have pictures on the Bird Watchers Digest website and in the permanent collection at the Gurwin Rehabilitation Center and the New Island Hospital on Long Island.

I currently have two photographs at the Mills Pond House in St.James, NY and one with the Art League of LI in Dix Hills, NY..
