I was born and raised in Northern California.  My love affair with photography began when I was thirteen -- my father gave me his old Exakta and built a darkroom in the basement of our Orinda home. I have been shooting ever since.


My commercial work has appeared on the covers of hundreds of books from publishers including Warner Books, HarperCollins and Random House. RIPE is my first monograph and has been recognized through awards from International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie, XTO Image Awards, and the B&W Spider Awards.


I live and work in Montclair, New Jersey, with my husband, Tom, and my daughter, Remi.
