All my life I have been capturing moments, whether by sketching or photography.
My earliest drawing was a finger painting of my house, an orange box with a black triangle on top. Next I remember drawing a frog on a lily pad. I can't take all the credit for the frog, a girl named Amy taught me how to draw the frog.
I participated in pre-college programs in the arts at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh Playhouse, and Pittsburgh Filmmakers. Prior to college I also worked at Kennywood Amusement Park as a sketch artist.
Next I went to Edinboro University of Pennsylvania where I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Major in Photography and a Masters of Arts in Communication. I received honors as a magna come laude graduate and who's who recipient. I was a member of Alpha Chi National College Honor Society, A little sister of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity and a sister of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority. I also interned as a photojournalist for the Daily News in McKeesport, PA.
While completing my masters I worked at WJET-TV 24 as a videographer, assistant promotion manager & courtroom sketch artist. Furthermore, I completed studies abroad in the arts at Exeter College of Oxford England and Post Grad in Broadcast Journalism at UCLA.
Next I moved to Miami where I worked as a courtroom sketch artist for WSVN 7. The Manuel Noriega trial was my last before retiring as a courtroom artist.
I am currently based in Los Angeles, CA but I travel the world to shoot fashion, Editorial, Travel & Lifestyle Photography.
