About

MY EARLIEST DRAWING WAS A FINGER PAINTING OF MY HOUSE, AN ORANGE BOX WITH A BLACK TRIANGLE ON TOP. NEXT I REMEMBER DRAWING A FROG ON A LILY PAD. I CAN'T TAKE ALL THE CREDIT FOR THE FROG, A GIRL NAMED AMY TAUGHT ME HOW TO DRAW THE FROG.

I PARTICIPATED IN PRE-COLLEGE PROGRAMS IN THE ARTS AT CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY, PITTSBURGH PLAYHOUSE, AND PITTSBURGH FILMMAKERS. PRIOR TO COLLEGE I ALSO WORKED AT KENNYWOOD AMUSEMENT PARK AS A SKETCH ARTIST.

NEXT I WENT TO EDINBORO UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA WHERE I COMPLETED A BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS, MAJOR IN PHOTOGRAPHY, AND A MASTERS OF ARTS IN COMMUNICATION. I RECEIVED HONORS AS A MAGNA CUME LAUDE GRADUATE AND WHO'S WHO RECIPIENT. I WAS A MEMBER OF ALPHA CHI NATIONAL COLLEGE HONOR SOCIETY, A LITTLE SISTER OF LAMBDA CHI ALPHA FRATERNITY, AND A SISTER OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU SORORITY. I ALSO INTERNED AS A PHOTOJOURNALIST FOR THE DAILY NEWS IN MCKEESPORT, PA.

WHILE COMPLETLING MY MASTERS I WORKED AT WJET- TV 24 AS A VIDEOGRAPHER, ASSISTANT PROMOTION MANGER & COURTROOM SKETCH ARTIST. FURTHERMORE, I COMPLETED STUDIES ABROAD IN THE ARTS AT EXETER COLLEGE OF OXFORD ENGLAND AND POST GRAD IN BROADCAST JOURNALISM AT UCLA.

NEXT I MOVED TO MIAMI WHERE I WORKED AS A COURTROOM SKETCH ARTIST FOR WSVN 7. THE MANUEL NORIEGA TRIAL WAS MY LAST TRIAL BEFORE RETIRING AS A COURTROOM ARTIST.

I AM CURRENTLY BASED IN LOS ANGELES, CA BUT I TRAVEL THE WORLD TO SHOOT FASHION, EDITORIAL, TRAVEL & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY.

ALL MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN CAPTURING MOMENTS, WHETHER BY SKETCHING OR PHOTOGRAPHY.
