I am am a collage artist, painter and photographer. I started taking photographs in college and I continued to work as a photographer now.

In 1995 I published a book in collaboration with my friend the poet, Elena Alexander 'Parallel Spell: 7 pictures 7 poems.'
In 1999 in a collaborative work with Mary Seidman and Dancers, a selected group of my street photography and portraits were projected onto a scrim as the background to the dance project “Heart Meridians” performed at Dance Theatre Workshop at St Marks Church in NYC.
Two of my photos won awards in international contests with the Artrom Gallery in Rome.
