Ipod touch digital photography

I was born in New York City, on the Museum Mile. 

My backyards were Riverside Drive Park and Central Park. The Museum of Natural History was my “home” museum with regular visits to see the rocks and bones. The Museum of the City of New York, and the Cloisters were also close friends. Later, The Met, the MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, and the old Whitney became my second homes.


Around nine, I moved to Brooklyn, where I later received my BA in Art History from Brooklyn College. Shortly after that, I left the great city and my life took a different turn.

I became an artist in December of 2008, and did non-objective acrylic paintings from then until April of 2015 when I started a series of iPod touch digital photographs called Abandoned. The series was borne of a short-lived rejection, but gradually dove deeper and deeper into the depths of abandonment.


I have work as a Marketing Director, and been an artists’ representative, and an art consultant. I live and work in New Jersey where I am currently a Curator at the Oyster Point Gallery in Red Bank. In 2015, I started an online gallery, The Jersey Artist Registry, to showcase the talent of New Jersey photographers, painters and sculptors.
