until website makeover, please view work here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/33429739@N00/ My love of photography stems from a formal training in the arts, music, theater, sculpture, art history. I believe that looking at what came before us helps us to form our (own) aesthetic. Assistant to Arnold Newman 1978-1980 Moved to Chicago assisted 1981-1984 Studio/catalog photographer 1984-86 1986-1990 food, table top, and branching out towards corporate and portraits 1990-1996 head of photo dept @ Ray (Vogue) College of Design, taught workshops through Columbia College and Art inst Expression over originality?
