Born and Raised New York Photographer, Artist and Writer with a degree in Culture & Media from The New School. I'm currently fascinated with Norma Desmond from Sunset Boulevard and attempt to find a bit of Norma in my subjects. I look to understand sexuality, identity and secrets in my photo work; while my art has often explored my Jewish identity. I interview my photo subjects as a way to further explore the relationship between photographer and subject. I also cherish taking polaroids of the people I meet and documenting these historical times...

I've shot for a variation of publications including, the CFDA, Paper Magazine, Out Magazine, Purple Diary, Interview Magazine and Nylon Magazine.

I am the current Photo Editor for Time Out USA.
