I was born in Columbia, South Carolina and raised in Brooklyn, New York where I currently reside.
At an early age my creative spark was kindled by my mother, who is an artist. I can remember as a young boy sitting by her side as she worked on her next painting. She would explain to me the how and whys of what it was she was doing.
Throughout the years I spent countless hours drawing, painting, model building, designing and crafting furniture, playing guitar in clubs and attending New York Technical College and trade schools. My interest in the technical aspect of things was apparent.
Photography enables me to combine my interests and love of the technical side of the craft with my passions for creativity and expression.
I am a self-taught photographer and find the medium to best fit my needs and vision.
I have been seriously working on my photography for about three years now, and have found this forum, Photo Critique of PhotographyReview.com to be the best and most helpful tool in the pursuit of my ambitions to express my visions through photography. In a comfortable and nurturing environment, one can progress and move forward on to wider creative visions as ones skills and techniques improve.
I display my work at various exhibits and galleries throughout New York. My works have been used to promote exhibits and I have had much acknowledgment, sales, and positive feedback from collectors and enthusiasts alike.
