About Me

I have over 20 years of experience with photography and have shown my work at various galleries in cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Tampa, and other locations. I began my education and practice using traditional methods (35mm film and wet lab darkroom printing and manipulation), and eventually transitioned to digital media. I am an expert in beauty retouching and creative imaging. I am very experienced with Photoshop and am a digital retouching specialist and photographer who specializes in conceptual fine art, fashion, editorial and beauty portraiture. I have owned a gallery, curated a number of group art shows, and also worked for galleries as a gallery director. Additionally, I have a background in advertising and public relations. In 2010, at the age of 39, I returned to school to complete my degree in digital photography - a long time goal of mine! I graduated with honors at the top of my class with a Bachelors of Science Degree in March 2014. I am currently based in Hollywood, California.
