I am a full-time photographer and journalist based in Western New York, sought after locally and nationally for my artful style in editorial and creative assignments. As a Buffalo native, and a proud urban pioneer basing my live/work space in the city's historic Old First Ward, I have a hard-working, positive can-do attitude, always.
As a trusted photo professional, I've been documenting and delivering happiness to my clients for over two decades.
In 2016 my business became a New York State-certified Woman-owned Business Enterprise (WBE) and is listed on the NYS MWBE Directory: as your WBE partner, this designation and expertise help your company/organization meet your goals.
I studied at University at Buffalo (English Literature major, Photography minor, and Arts Management independent study via Black Mountain College II), and at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts – the school's first-ever M.F.A. class of thirteen photo graduate students.
I am a contributing music reviewer and reporter for The Buffalo News and a regular contributor to Buffalo Spree Magazine, writing lifestyle features and shooting photographs for them: I'm also Event Photographer there. I've won awards for my photography and writing and was recognized as a business leader as a recipient of Buffalo Business First's 40 Under Forty award.
