I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma. – Eartha Kitt

It’s true.

I am learning all the time, as a photographer and a human being; through both I continue to grow. With the receipt of a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi I am able to continue learning about my love for photography – which started when I was very young, examining my father’s cameras and the chemicals he used to process his works. Eventually my father and I began to do photoshoots together, exploring the streets of New York City and capturing whatever caught our attention.

Of all the attributes I received from my father, our similar photographic eye astounds him. (Often, it astounds me too.) Therefore, don’t be surprised when you see a photo of a dirty NYC alleyway, an interestingly lit door, or different perspectives on architecture.

Through this learning process I have discovered I enjoy photographing people and nature, just as much as my hometown of New York City.

Quintessentially, I do define myself as the following: photographer, literary lover, and the human music encyclopedia. This description is pretty apt if you’re looking to obtain just a quick idea of who I am.
