  • 1990 graduated from the Southeastern Center for Photographic Studies in Daytona Beach with an Associates Degree in Professional Photography

  • 1995 Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Art History from the American University of Paris

  • 2 years internship in the photography department of the Louvre photographing art and artifacts.

  • Photographer on the archeological site of Tanis in Egypt in 1996.

When I returned to the states I focused my camera on fine art objects and photographed commercially for galleries, museums and art auctioneers. I believe that studying and looking at fine art for so many years has had a big influence on my own work. To me my clients aren't simply models - through my lens I imagine my subjects as nymphs, goddesses, and mermaids, of another time and place.
