I am a New York based fine art photographer specializing in architecture, street, and landscape photography. My work is rooted in my love of history and architecture and the inspiration I find in cultural and vanishing landscapes. I have photographed disappearing ghost towns in the American West; the Art Deco Historic District in South Beach, Miami; iconic scenes along Route 66; vanishing storefronts in New York City; and rural landscapes along Long Island’s East End. My work has been featured in domestic and international exhibitions, and included in corporate and private
