A little about me...
I’m an artist who loves being on both sides of the camera. Growing up my father shot hundreds of rolls of film documenting various moments of my life – both the mundane and the extraordinary.
I instinctively became animated when the lens was pointed at me. I played. I utilized any and all props within arm’s reach including, at times, my reluctant but willing cat. I created micro-characters and micro-scenes. It all made for some strange, but compelling images. I came to appreciate the process as much as the results.
This playfulness and joy of performing led me to a degree in Theatre from Northeastern University in Boston – with my sights always set on screen acting. And, it was during this period of student acting that I discovered my own skills working behind the camera. It started with informal portraits, which led to acting and corporate headshots, and all sorts of events. In the process, I have built a substantial portfolio as a professional photographer.
My experience on both sides of the camera has instilled in me a degree of comfort and intuitiveness that informs my acting. On set, it manifests itself in a strong yet subconscious sense of camera awareness which helps me to anticipate what a DP might be looking for in a shot. And when I am behind the lens, I can help guide my clients towards the same ease of self-expression that I’ve experienced while being photographed.
It is that ease of self-expression that is needed to show both the extraordinary and the mundane.
