“The Awakening,” is J. Seward Johnson Jr.’s 15-foot-high by 70 foot wide sculpture of a giant struggling to emerge from the earth, made in 1980 and located at National Harbor in Prince George's County, Maryland, USA, just outside the District of Columbia.


In July 2017, I was published on two pages of a new book commemorating the international sculptor, Seward Johnson.  



I collaborated with NYC Recording Artist Chris Leamy for the re-release of his single "American Man", my picture is used to advertise the song on spotify.

The Deep Slumber of Dogs

The Winter Spider


When You're Called "Mommy".  A novel by Dr Sophie Foster sharing her experiences of being a foster parent.  Now on sale at Dr Sophie Foster Books.


In late 2016, I collaborated with my friend and Naval Academy classmate to design the  book cover of her new novel.  She gave me a quick description of what she wanted, and I raced out to find the perfect image to convey her vision.


Author's vision:   "The book is about my experience with the foster care system, and the feeling I'm hoping to convey with the book cover is hopelessness/emptiness/despair with a glimmer of hope. I envision a biracial child (girl), disheveled, in one hand a plastic bag of clothes, in the other hand a stuffed animal. Picture can be from any angle, front, side, or back (I'm thinking back, so face can be obscure). Primary picture in black/white/gray but stuffed animal in vibrant color."  

The book was finally released February 2018.

Rosemary Feit Covey, Artist, Alexandria  VA

I provided photographic support to my friend and talented artist Rosemary Covey. Her art studio (#224) is located in the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, Alexandria. The series of pictures you see here are from a photo shoot showcasing Rosemary's vision called "The 0 [zero] Project" which at the time of the shoot was on display in the Torpedo Factory elevator.


Thematically, 0 expresses the voicelessness we all often feel when confronted with some of our deepest concerns. The 0 Project offers a forum for viewers whose concerns are too subtle or too personal to be addressed in such a massive manner. It is a catalyst for conversation regardless of age, gender, race, political or social cause. The image is a reminder to respond to the world around us and that silence can be the equivalent of a silent scream. Fundamentally, it is a reminder that art is a vital mode of contemporary communication.
