Publicity Consultant, Photographer, Writer and Advocate residing in New York.

I was born in the spring of 1968. At the age of 8, I was reading Shakespeare, Hemingway and Steinbeck and I've been having a love affair with words ever since.

Humanity, in all of its bittersweet forms, is the heartbeat of my writing and photography. My zest for life and living it to its fullest translates through my craft. I'm a true romantic soul who craves human connection like one needs air, and I'm not content with anything less. My passions and inspirations include people, music, books, art, photography, philosophy, psychology, poetry, film, world culture, dance, travel, cooking and fine wine. These all feed my mind, heart, soul and creativity.

My favorite writers are Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Egar Allan Poe, E.E. Cummings, Robert Frost, Arthur Rimbaud, Marcel Proust, Kurt Vonnegut, Stéphane Mallarmé, Charles Bukowski, W.H. Auden, T. S. Eliot, Rainer Maria Rilke, Paul Auster, Carson McCullers, Tennessee Williams, Maurice Blanchot and Rumi.
