One day, more than 20 years ago, I piloted my Hot Air Balloon to 11,000 feet as a jumping platform for sky divers. While descending, I noticed what looked like a high school from a mile up, and made my way toward an empty area nearby. I soon learned that I mistakenly landed on prison ground. After landing, the warden and inmates all had a laugh about my mile-high confusion, posing for pictures with the balloon. It was soon thereafter that I decided to sell the balloon and start traveling.
During the past 20 years I have split my time between New York, the Mediterranean and California. The photography skills and artistry I developed along my travels have evolved into several multimedia platforms such as film, commercials, music videos, documentaries and print campaigns.
