The first cameras I worked with, and an early photo taken with the older camera. Note the now-obsolete phone booth.

As a kid, I made hand-lettered posters of corny sayings. Many high school afternoons were dedicated to silkscreening posters for school plays. I became enthralled with photography as a college freshman (the image coming up in the developer was magical) and studied photojournalism. From then, visual communications has been my life-long career.

The most satisfying work combines photography, graphic design and production in support of positive, progressive social and political change--an important personal goal. I specialize in helping clients organize publications: managing writing, editing, graphics, photos, publishing and distribution.


In New York's Capital Region since 1979, working in graphic design, publication production, photography and electronic media in both the public and private sectors, including:
--graphic design, photography and videography in the Office of the NYS State Comptroller
--freelance legal videography
--co-owner/manager of a political communications/graphic design business.
--Received a degree in Photojournalism from the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in 1975.

See the design and photography pages for samples.

Thank you for visiting.
