Philadelphia. I have always thought of myself as a storyteller /journalist/ documentary photographer. I have also been doing freelance assignments on location for news media and local institutions. I came to photography after an eight year career as a teacher specializing in reading for grades K-12. However, in 1978 I left teaching, which I loved and felt had the potential to change individual lives, to follow my true passion, photography, which I also believe has the power to enrich and enlighten people's lives. Now I get to link these two themes in my life, teaching and photography.
