"My goal is to create outstanding images whether it be through designing magazines,
logos, promotional pieces, or through photographing people, places, or things."

As a photographer, illustrator, and graphic designer you get the "full package" wrapped into one person for your project. I do event photography, corporate head shots, environmental head shots, and on location photo shoots with children and families in the New York area. Not included in this site are the photo shoots of children and families. I did not include them in this site because of right to privacy requests by the parents. However, you may view my portfolio of these images upon request.
Feel free to contact me today for a quote for your next project.
All the best,
