I'm a photojournalist and portrait photographer based in New York City. As a former aspiring actor myself, I discovered an affinity for creating actor headshots. I love and understand actors, enjoy drawing out their unique personalities and capturing them with authenticity. I especially love working with young actors just starting out, helping them to discover their unique place in the acting world, and setting them up for success in a very daunting field.
In my personal work, I am interested in issues of poverty, social boundaries, and identity. In my spare time, I work on social documentary projects. I adore street photography and the street portrait, in particular.
I grew up in New York City and attended Barnard College, majoring in cultural anthropology. Then, in my 20s, I packed up my things and drove to California for a number of years. I went to journalism school and hatched a plan to become a photographer. After extensive studies on both coasts, I decided to return to NYC where I draw inspiration from the streets.
It's been a great ride. In 2015, I was named one of The Knot's top wedding photographers, noted for my natural and narrative approach to the day. My work has appeared in major publications, including The New York Times, W, Glamour, US Weekly, and GQ.
