"I found a wealth of imagery in my own backyard"
America is a beautiful country rich in cultural diversity.
Its people are as interesting and colorful as any other country
I have visited and photographed. Some of my favorite work
was created right here in the U.S of A. and I am
extremely proud to be a native New Yorker to coin a phrase. "
Some time passed and many miles of celluloid
later, family beckoned and he found himself back in Miami Beach
where he currently lives and works a couple of blocks
from one of the most beautiful and vibrant beaches in the world.
He has settled in as a wedding photographer
where he finds fertile ground for inspiration doing what he does best.
Photographing people in their natural environments.
