My love of photography started with pictures of my favorite on-screen celebrities: Linnea Quigley, Christina Applegate, Sherilyn Fenn. So, for me, photos are about beauty, fashion, glamour and fantasy.
A familiar face in many of New York City's underground scenes, I began taking pictures of my favorite artists, DJs, band members, photographers and friends in the Fall of 2012.
My camera of choice is the Polaroid ProPack. I love the physical nature of holding a finished picture, while satisfying this millennium's fascination for instant gratification.
I take candid portraits in an attempt to reflect to the duality of human nature, people's aspirations and vulnerability, and the unique personality of this fantastic city and the people who live here.
