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 designer for such clients as: Mercedes-Benz, Bacardi, Macy's, Mystic Seaport Museum, Samsonite and Revlon. I have worked over twenty-five years in the gift / catalog and advertising industry designing corporate identity, trade show displays, national print brand advertisements, product development, and 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 and historic architecture. My collection of local historic doors are my most popular products.

I market and distribute printed bookmarks, postcards, greeting cards, magnets, keychains and marble products (including coasters, magnets, paperweights) along with matted & hand-signed prints / posters to local area shops and college bookstores.
