I began taking photographs at a young age after receiving my first Minolta SLR camera. After receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Montclair State University in 1992, I began my professional photography and design career in the New York City, working as a senior art director / graphic designer for such clients as: Mercedes-Benz, DuPont, Bacardi, Deloitte & Touche, Cadbury, Samsonite, Macy's, Revlon and The U.S. Mint. I have worked over twenty years in the gift / catalog and advertising industry designing corporate identity, trade show displays, national print brand advertisements, marketing campaigns, etc.

In 1992, I founded PhD Design & Photography. Today, my printed gift products are currently being sold in over forty stores in six states: CT, MA, NH, NJ, NY and RI. I market and distribute all printed bookmarks, postcards, greeting cards, marble products (including coasters, magnets, paperweights, etc.) along with hand-signed prints, matted prints and posters to local area shops and college bookstores.
