I have been involved with the arts since I first gripped a crayon in my native Massachusetts. After momentary stints as a rock musician, modern dancer and a professional photographer, I have primarily concentrated on creating and exhibiting my visual art and writing and performing my poems and short stories.


I've read at the Poetry Project at St. Mark's in New York City, was featured at The Woodstock Poetry Festival as well as other venues throughout the Hudson Valley. My writing has appeared in numerous publications including, Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, Chronogram, Dyed-in-the-Wool, Wildflowers, and the Half Moon Review and will soon appear in Prima Materia Writings.

In New York City I showed my fine art prints and mixed media while working as a professional photographer and graphic artist. After fifteen years of commecial photography and graphic design I have found my way back to more traditional methods of fine art in my personal work. Since arriving Upstate I have developed my printmaking skills and continue in my mixed media artwork, using my own photographs as source material. Currently I am showing at The Living Room in Historic Uptown Kingston and have participated in numerous group shows at various galleries including The Woodstock Artist's Association, Fotoquest Gallery and an upcoming show at The Cross Street Gallery.
