I live on Long Island, NY and have always loved photographing NYC at night. That NYC skyline captures my heart every time. However, I've also had a love affair with coastal california for almost 30 years. Now I have the opportunity to capture, via the digital world of photography, the beauty that has always been within my memories. Photographing is always on my mind even if the camera is not in my hand. I tend to view the world in snapshots, frequently imagining how the shot would look if I could've captured it as it was happening at that moment. Preserving those special moments in life when we get to share a glimpse of pure innocence, goodness, or just the sheer beauty of the world around us. Life really IS worth photographing.
