I received a Bachelor's degree in Art Education from SUNY New Paltz, and a Master's of Fine Arts degree in Digital Media from CUNY Lehman College. My thesis project was a digitally animated short film called The Duel. Yes, you can find it on YouTube.
Here at Hastings High School I teach all of the photography classes: Photo 1 & 2 (both darkroom classes), Digital Photo, and AP Photo. For more information about our photo program and the curriculum I follow, you can check out the HHS Photo website
I threw together. I would like to take a moment to thank the generous Hastings Education Foundation for funding several of my projects over the last few years including new telephoto and macro lenses for students, and a new fleet of 35mm cameras to help keep the film photography program alive here at Hastings.
I am also the advisor to the HHS Photo Club. In the past we have done charity work through Help Portrait, gone on field trips to the annual Photo Expo and the New York Botanical Gardens. We have also done fundraising at school events such as Homecoming and the Relay for Life. Look for our booths at local town and school events!
I live here in Hastings with my wife Stacey and my daughters Evelyn and Adelaide. Maybe I'll see you at the Farmer's Market.
