I began my career as a photo editor and researcher at several picture libraries in NYC, the last of which was Corbis Outline, which specialized in celebrity portraits. I was the photo editor for many highly esteemed photographers including; Andrew Eccles, Sante D'Orazio, Kwaku Alston, Ruven Afanador, and Davis Factor. On the weekends, I shot children's birthday parties and family portraits in Central Park. 

In 2010, my family moved to the suburbs of CT where lavish birthday parties at 5-star hotels are not really a thing. A few years later, I started shooting Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. It's an incredible day that's all about family and tradition. And for that day, I get the best seat in the house to all the day's events. It is truly an honor.

For events like Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, my goal is to capture all the emotion of the day. All the love. The love of grandparents, parents, and friends. The expressive looks. The hugs. The excitement.  The laughter.
