My back story as a visual artist began with painting, color theory and philosophy studies at the University of Colorado in Boulder and graduate work at Flinders University in South Australia under Professor Donald Brooke. I then spent a year backpacking through Southeast Asia, India and the Himalayas with camera and sketchbook before settling in New York to study abstract painting at the Art Student’s League of New York. I then spent a decade living and working in Paris as a fine art, fashion and portrait photographer before a return to NYC in 1990 and into the embrace of the Digital Age.

My affinity for digital manipulation began with an intensive Photoshop v.1 course for visual professionals at the legendary Kodak Center for Creative Imaging in the early 90’s. A world of image-making possibility opened up, which led directly to digital imaging for Wendall Harrington’s large scale theatrical projections, exhibitions of archival pigment prints, and commissioned work for private collectors as well as for public, institutional display.

As for the web, I’ve been involved since the beginning. The public release of the Mosaic browser in 1993 marked the beginning of the World Wide Web, and my design and programming skills grew in step with the web’s development. A solid, working grasp of the fundamentals – from the ground up – is proving to be a valuable asset in handling the complexity of today’s web, with its array of templates, filters, short codes, widgets, plugins and whatnot.

I live and work in New York.
