My career has been about one thing:  Telling stories.  As a passionate advocate for communication that is anchored by both words and visuals, I’ve done assignments for editorial publications and corporations around the world.  My photo-journalism has complimented the words of some very talented journalists…when I’ve not been doing both myself.  But, I’ve always seemed to have the gut feeling that the heart of any message is told most compellingly via dynamic moving and still images.  Fast forward to the 21st Century.  Now all this work — “content”  as it has become broadly known —has transformed into a sort of natural progression of multimedia storytelling, both on the Internet and mobile devices.

Yes, the delivery method may be changing, but at the core, a story is still a story and it’s what binds us all.Never losing site of my passion for teaching, I’ve coached professional journalists and elementary school kids alike in the craft of visual storytelling,  creating mini training workshops in it, too.   One thing I try to impart is  when attempting to reveal a story, is to never lose sight of the character and who is listening. It’s the doorway to learning and offers a humanistic touch that when done well, will convey an idea like no special effects can.

My work  has spanned many  subjects — light and heavy — and has appeared widely in venues like  The New York Times,  NewsweekLIFE and  TIME  magazines and for commercial clients like CBS, Inc, Betsey Johnson, Deloitte, HBO as well as non-profits like the YMCA and the pioneering Horizons summer enrichment program for low income kids at the New Canaan [Conn.] Country School.

I’m based in Fairfield Country, Connecticut and cover the New York metro area and New England.  My company and it’s mobile applications and video storytelling work can be viewed at the links below.
