After receiving my Bachelor of Fine
Arts degree at Montclair State University, I began my professional photography
and design career in the New York City area, working as a senior art director / graphic

various marketing campaigns, etc.
In 1992, I founded PhD Design & Photography. Today, my printed gift
products are currently being sold in over fifty stores in seven states: CT, MA,
NH, NJ, NY, PA and RI. My gift products encompass my passion for photography
