I am 25 years old, I have lived in New Jersey my whole life. I had an interest in photography starting at age 16, we bought a new computer that came with Microsoft Picture It! 99. It was a clone of photoshop, I had fun creating pictures and editing them. I was completely self taught. I went to The Academy of the Arts in 2002 for graphic design. In my second year I took a photography class and decided that suited me better. When you are a photographer you get to meet all kinds of people and travel different places. It's never boring, always challenging.
