I grew up in Greenwich Village in New York City, spending weekends and summers in upstate New York where I learned to love nature. Extended studies at the University of Delaware ending in 1998 also provided me with ample opportunity to love nature, and in particular the seashore; it is in Delaware that I discovered photography. After a brief career in New York City, I left the business world to return to academia and moved to the Connecticut shoreline in 2004. I am by trade a Social Psychologist and was employed full-time as a Professor at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut until January 2021, at which time I entered the semi-retired population. I still teach and do research consulting, but I now have a lot more time to focus on my loves which include traveling, enjoying nature, gardening (flowers and vegetables and fruits), and of course photography. I shoot using a digital SLR camera, and what I see is what you get; I do not edit, filter, or crop my images. The largest manipulation I embark on is to move an object to different spaces, experimenting with background color and surface. My work explores the beauty (and sometimes tragedy) of nature and human experience, examining color, form, movement, and physical traces of human activity. I have exhibited and sold my work locally at area summer and fall festivals, art shows at my college, and the former City-Wide Open Studios.
