I was born in Brooklyn NY, so naturally I thought that the entire world was completely built up and packed with hordes of people. For occasional family outings, we would go to museums in Manhattan (which I hated at first). But hate turned into love, and looking at paintings and illustrations soon became a new world for me to escape into, full of color, history, landscape, and imagination.

    After a broad fine arts study, I began a career in animation, working on the feature film Tubby the Tuba and then TV commercials in NYC. This evolved, as styles changed, into becoming a motion graphics, special effects camerawoman - shooting commercials for American and South American TV.

    As computers were threatening the film industry, I accepted a job at Coleco Industries Inc. as an artist/animator for the Colecovision, Atari and Intellivision video game systems. Some of the games that I worked on are Atari - Zaxxon, Intellivision - Turbo and for Colecovision - Smurf, Turbo, Slither, Gorf and Buck Rogers Planet of Zoom.

     My current photo work has been very influenced by my past work in film special effects, the dynamics of motion graphics, and the ability  to now work in a flexible digital environment.

     I have recently written and illustrated a children's book titled ALEX & THE DATA BUGS. The print and ebook are both available on amazon.
