I am a professor in the Holyoke Community College Art Department, Holyoke, MA, USA. My courses often utilize service learning and community work. Some of my classes attempt to integrate contemplative practice with the art of photography. Balancing the classroom, the community, the camera and the contemplative mind is a life-long challenge.
I have a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Bard College and have received a National Endowment for the Arts/ New England Foundation for the Arts grant for work with the Puerto Rican community in Holyoke, Massachusetts. The Polaroid Foundation and ViewCamera Magazine have awarded my work in Tibet and the Rotary Foundation has funded my photography in India.
I have made four trips to the former Yugoslavia with The Friends of Bosnia and the Center for Balkan Development. This work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe.
In 2006, Amherst College Press published "Curious Footprints", a book of my natural history photographs with an essay by Nancy Pick and an afterword by Ben Lifson. The book is available through Amazon.
When I am not teaching or working on long term projects, I am available for freelance work.
Prints are available for exhibition, publication or sale.

"I must say that i am led to follow the pages of your photos, they are like an old gift left here for no one and yet open for all. I was hoping for some insight in your profile and also expecting the usual photo groupings and sets of flickr exposures. To me your photos have such an etheral presence. They just seem to appear and i am drawn into the gazes and images waiting for me."
