A graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography and protegé of famed celebrity photographer Sid Avery, he helped establish The Motion Picture and Television Photo Archive (MPTV) in Los Angeles, California as a leading Agency / Archive, specializing in Hollywood and Entertainment related photography.
As MPTV's in-house printer of fine art gallery prints and Gallery Department Manager, he helped develop MPTV's Gallery Print program furthering the accessibility to Hollywood's unique imagery by talented and heretofore "unsung" Hollywood Photographers like Bernie Abramson, Richard C. Miller, Joe Shere, Sanford H. Roth, Gene Trindl among many others.
He is presently the director of Digital Resources at MPTV and Co-Creator and acting Editor in Chief of the company's multi - faceted internet presence. He is also the Co-Creator of The Starlight Gallery, a web based Photographic Gallery that showcases the work of Hollywood / Entertainment Photographers.
His images can be viewed and licensed in the USA exclusively at MPTV.net
