I was born in London in 1966 and have lived in the Washington DC area since 1987. I've been a keen photographer for as long as I can remember.

My photographs are hanging in dozens of private collections. They are also held in one public collection - my orange (London) series was purchased by the DC Government's Art Bank for their permanent collection. Those four photographs are currently on permanent display at DC City Hall.
