I grew up in Rockaway Twp. NJ. I swore I was going to move as far away as possible. I now live in Rockaway Boro, one town over.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. This is me, in 7th grade, at Space Camp.
I went to William Paterson University. I was part of the first graduating class as a University.
I used to paint. When I started school, it was all I wanted to do. After I took a photo course, my priorities changed. All I wanted to do was take pictures.
My first SLR camera, the Pentax K-1000. It's a great camera, and I don't think I will ever get rid of it. Now I use Canon cameras.
In 1994, I met Sam in 3D design class. We've been together ever since. We were married on Aug. 11, 2000.
While in school, I interned for Lois Greenfield. It was my first experience being around a working photographer and studio.
After I granduated, I started working at Rollercoaster Studios. I built sets and did lighting for assorted videos, including a lot of infomercials.
In 2001, Sam and I bought our house. Its old and requires a lot of work. I love it and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
In 2003, I started at Brian J Ganton & Associates. First as an assistant, then photographer, and now Studio Manager.
Behind the camera is Chris Ganton. I wouldn't be where I am today without his help.
I like to make stuff.
I don't mind getting dirty.
I Love Books. I'm going to have to build another bookcase soon. The ones we have are almost all full.
