"After growing up on Long Island in Massapequa and in New Jersey near Pennington, I spent a number of years adventuring through 4 colleges from Wisconsin to Oregon. Between college stints I found jobs working at the Grand Canyon, a fishing lodge in Alaska and cooking for geophysical crews on the North Slope of Alaska. I finally settled in sunny Southern California and while taking acting class from veteran cowboy actor Peter Breck, I began photographing classmates for their comp. cards. I "broke into" the business in ´83 landing a job moving furniture for a Robinsons department store catalog shoot. From there I assisted photographers for about 3 years before starting my own business."
