After earning a degree in Physics from Cornell University, and wanting greater aesthetic engagement with my work, I began a journey from the world of science to the world of art. My path crossed that of Frederick Sommer, a master of photographic art, with whom I served for five years as an apprentice in Arizona, getting a photographic education and an introduction to the universe of art and design.
My photographic specialties are architecture, art, and portraiture. This site features architectural work, but I have photographed paintings, graphics, and sculpture for many museums, collectors, and artists in the Washington, DC, area, and contributed to Washington Sculpture by James M. Goode.
A master printer, I have made silver-gelatin and ink jet prints for special exhibitions at the National Portrait Gallery and the National Museum of American History.
I have taught photography at GMU and at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. My work has been exhibited in Washington at The Tartt Gallery and David Adamson Gallery, in New York at Pace MacGill, and in Mexico at the Centro Cultural La Tallera de David Alfaro Siqueiros in Cuernavaca.
My wife and I live in Bethesda, MD, with our dear cat.
