Born June 9, 1959 in Binghamton, NY where I grew up.
I cut my teeth in photography working for Eastern Photo Labs traveling around the country doing in store portraits Moved to Buffalo with my first wife (Esther) and began doing weddings for Wilmack Photographers in 1980.

Being left to raise my 4 month old daughter I left the photo business and went to work for the state of NY (mental health) after remarrying and moving to Lakeview, NY I picked the camera back up and started stringing for Bee Group Newspapers and fell in love with photojournalism.
