I am a fine art photographer and educator born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I have lived in the Bay Area and worked in my Oakland studio for more than twenty-five years. My work has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationally and resides in various corporate and public art collections, including those of the Alameda County Art Commission, Berkeley Civic Arts Center, the San Francisco Arts Commission, the David Brower Center, and the Kala Institute. My work is represented by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Artists Gallery, Danielle Wohl Fine Art, SLATE Gallery, and the Kala Institute Art Gallery.
I taught photography at California State University (East Bay) for more than a decade and was an adjunct professor in the photography departments at both Ohlone and Solano colleges. I currently teach photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in both the graduate and undergraduate divisions.
I am also involved in a collaborative partnership, Counterpoint Studio, in which my partner, Peter Tonningsen and I create large scale commissioned artworks for public spaces. We are very pleased to have recently been awarded commissions by the City of Atlanta, Texas Tech University, Northern Texas University, Stanford University, Highland Hospital, the City of Mountain View, and San Francisco General Hospital.
