My chosen career path wasn’t exactly a straight line to photography. I was definitely one of those kids with a camera in my hand, fascinated by the world around me, but I also had a strong desire to help others and make a difference in the world. I graduated from UMASS Amherst in 1987 with a degree in Psychology and in 1993 I completed an MSW at Smith College School for Social Work.

I spent the next few years working as a family therapist but I was downsized three times in three years and became disillusioned. I took a few months off to travel the US from one national park to the next and decided there were opportunities waiting for me in sales and marketing. I spent nearly a decade building businesses where I was able to travel extensively and meet incredible people.

Flash forward to 2006, back in Boston and married to the love of my life. One day she saw me making a list of businesses I’d like to start and she said:

“How come I always see photography at the top of the list but you never take it seriously?”

And with that, what began as a simple exploration into digital workshops at New England School of Photography led to a series of intense hands-on training opportunities and mentoring with internationally recognized icons and industry leaders.

Fast forward to 2021. Today I am incredibly fortunate to work with top leaders in business, sports, politics, and entertainment. And the best part is that I still have the same enthusiasm as I did back when I was a little kid with a new camera in my hands.
