I am the author of “Treading Water,” a collection of my humor columns and essays, and “A Bouquet of Roses” a collection of shorts stories previously published in other places.. My poetry, fiction and non-fiction have appeared in print and online and also produced as stage readings and a radio play. I admires Shirley Jackson, sharing her penchant for both humor and horror.

As a photographer and a poet, capturing the essence a moment is paramount, whether by painting a picture with words, or creating digital art from a photograph. Photography and poetry have much in common and form, the line is often blurred; poetry conjuring an image, and photography inspiring lyrical words. In my digital art as well as my writing, I look to capture and preserve both real and imagined moments in time. My photography has been featured in several online magazines, and the NJ Law Center Art Show.
As a lifelong storyteller I use that concept in artistic pursuits, professional work as a graphic designer and in keynote presentations and workshops centered on the importance of enhancing well being, whether that is through writing, artistic expression, or laughter.
My graphic design work reflects an interest in posters as both art and cultural statement.
