I am a freelance journalist specialized in the area of fashion, art and particularly photography. I’m a contributing essayist to the fashion photography book series, Fashion Images de Mode.
Media appearances include: NBC’s Today Show, New York’s LX Television with Joan Rivers, AOL’s Wallet Pop, Australia’s Today Tonight, and Jacques Peretti’s BBC Two series: The Man Who Made Us Spend.
Both fiction and non-fiction projects are currently in progress, including a “cli-fi” novel tentatively titled, “Wheat.”
