I moved to Brooklyn in 1989 from Tampa, Florida, during a career that took me to three newspapers across the south, culminating with my photography career in New York City.

The urban environment in Brooklyn is a different kind of lifestyle. The architecture and people are ever changing. I witnessed the rebirth of the Brooklyn waterfront from shipping to entertainment and outdoor activities. The hidden treasures of the past are interspersed throughout the new construction.

Welcome to Brooklyn.
