I offers] you extraordinary memories from your important life events through my artistic perspective, knowledge, and experience in photography. In 1999 I received my Bachelors of Arts in photography and digital imaging. I attended the Ringling College of Art and Design, one of the most highly recognized and innovative arts colleges in the United States. I have had the privilege to photograph nationally and across Europe.
After graduating, I left Sarasota, Florida and worked side by side with actors and crew in New York television, including the day time dramas: All My Children, One Life to Live, Guiding Light, and As the World Turns. During this period, I garnered an array of skills, particularly in technical lighting, which I continue to employ in my current work. Recently, I again was able to step outside the family and special event realm, and photographed the Food Network’s renowned Paula Deen. This, and other similar experiences, have heightened my interest for featuring portraits of individuals and families and enhance my passion for unique personal lifestyle and animal portraits.
I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America as well as the local chapter of the Professional Photographer's Guild. I also have the prestige of winning national honors, such as the Ava Video Award along with Imagination Unlimited Weddings. I also find tremendous gratification in volunteering my services for the American Cancer Association.
To further add to my repertoire, I have been newly appointed as a member of the esteemed faculty at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. I now will be able to share my knowledge, experience and passion for photography with students at my own alma mater. I am proud of this opportunity and eager to begin this 2011-2012 academic year. I am also a visual arts instructor at IQ Village School of the Arts in Orlando, Fl.
I have an incomparable passion for photography and enjoy every aspect of the art from precise lighting to capturing candid moments. I relish in featuring each person’s distinctive beauty.
