Lives and maintains a studio in Philadelphia. Professional biography appears in “Who’s Who in American Art” and “Who’s Who in America.”

Photographic work concentrates on psychological portraiture, the narrative of the heart and the mind.

The complete body of work can be seen as intimate, enigmatic, and emotionally complex, with a suggestion of peoples’ inner lives and personal stories. Through the dramatic use of staging, color, shadow and light the portraits become a kind of psychological theater. 

The artist has traveled extensively around the world. He has a continuing interest and involvement in the field of Psychiatry.
