A fourth generation New Yorker, I was born in Brooklyn, graduated from Fordham University in the Bronx, and have been located for many years on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Before retiring, I had a long career as a photographer.  Although I'm quite knowledgeable in digital imaging and in fact currently maintain a blog devoted to digital photography, I specialized during my working years in traditional film photography and was particularly skilled in making fine art black & white prints in a wet darkroom.

In recent years, fulfilling a lifelong ambition, I've begun a second career as an author.  My novels are currently available online at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Links to both my photography and writing are shown below.  Note that some photos contain artistic nudity.  Those who are offended by such content are welcome to visit instead my page on Fine Art America where my photographs of flowers are available for purchase.
