I’m a photographer, visual artist and writer, focused primarily on street life, folk traditions, outsider expression, and the power and fragility of the natural world.

Both percussionists and primatologists quicken my pulse. A graduate of The Cooper Union in New York, I’ve crewed at design firms, publishers, and newspapers. To pursue my passions, I’ve made and paid my own way, camera in hand. My stories and images have appeared in Frommer’s Travel, Africa Geographic, Pop Photo, Travel Weekly, Los Angeles Times, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Baltimore Sun, Institutional Investor, GoNomad, The Bark, and Berkshire Hathaway Travel.

Ferry Folly, my 1930’s bungalow, serves as workshop, repository of art and ephemera gleaned from travels, and as sanctuary to diverse creatures, both tame and feral.

I’m a photographer, writer, visual artist, and in my own way, explorer. I document street life, festival arts, material culture and vernacular expression, and when possible, the power and fragility of the natural world.
