Welcome to my website! I am a writer, photographer, and author of JOURNEYS THROUGH DARKNESS: A BIOGRAPHY telling the story of the AIDS pandemic through the inspiring story of Kurt Weston, an award-winning, legally blind photographer.

In addition, I am Arts Editor of A&U Magazine–America’s AIDS Magazine . Check out more about A&U by watching Ron B’s show, No Boundaries: Up Close and Personal.

Recently I was again on Ron B’s show, No Boundaries: Up Close and Personal to chat about photography, women empowerment and much more. Check it out!


Also, I have written for Precise Moment an online photography publication, and contributed as a writer/photographer to Out IN Jersey Magazine and other publications.

I’m also an NYIP photography instructor. Check out what my NYIP students say about me (thank you very much!)

As a photographer, I specialize in covering portraits/headshots, editorials, and weddings/engagements. Whenever I have the chance, I cover nature and the environment. Here are a few samples from personal and other photography projects.

Feel free to browse through my website, and check out my Clients and Work Samples page.
