I carry my camera with me throughout my life. I shoot everyday stories.
Walking with my camera gives me a way of looking around and about, seeing new things. My photos capture a moment, a poem…they play with one another and tell new stories.
I returned to photography in the last ten years.
Since the early eighties, I have been an activist in the independent political movement. 40% of Americans are now independent, having left the Democratic and Republican parties. Faith in our government is at a all time low. Partisanship has frozen our country, leaving our most pressing problems unsolved. I believe we have to restructure our political process and move power away from the parties and to the American people. I have worked as a community organizer and leader in creating new organizations for independents. I am the chair of the New York City Independence Party and the founder of the Politics for the People. Hope you will visit my political book club and blog.
I graduated from Wheaton College with a BS in chemistry and hold a masters degree in nursing from Simmons College.
I was born in Gardner, MA in the late 50’s. Gardner is the Chair City of World, a small dying industrial city. We lived on the outskirts just down the road from an egg farm and dairy farm–all now long gone. My family moved to Cape Cod when I was 11. I moved to New York City in 1988 and live in Hell’s Kitchen.
