The wonders of living in Manhattan compelled me to quit my job and become a photojournalist in 1986. The first assignment I snagged was for a community newspaper called The Villager, which paid $20 for a published photo. I was hooked.
I bought a police scanner, took photo classes, assisted professionals, snuck into news events without a press pass and clawed my way up the slippery freelance ladder in New York City. I shot for The Observer, Associated Press, Agence France Presse, New York Magazine and New York Newsday where I became a full time contract photographer for a couple of years.
In 1990 I began shooting for The New York Times, spending five years shooting over 2000 assignments for several sections. After the birth of my third child I left NYC for metro Boston where I shot editorial assignments for many major publications as well as commercial work for Fortune 500 companies.
I'm available for photo assignments in New England and beyond.
