I was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953 and graduated from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1974 with a degree in Music and Philosophy. After working in New York City as a picture framer and pianist, I relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, where I attended Boston University School of Law, graduating in 1982. I work in the Boston area as a criminal defense lawyer, primarily representing indigent clients.

            I began to seriously study photography in 2007 when I attended my first workshop, led by David Alan Harvey. Since then, I have participated in numerous workshops with many great photographers working in the documentary tradition, including Jeff Jacobson, Stella Johnson, Constantine Manos, and Alex Webb.

            My work has been exhibited at the Danforth Museum and the Griffin Museum of Photography.
