I have loved photography ever since I picked up my first camera at 13 years old, however, as an adult it hasn't always been my profession.
I was born in Cairo, raised in Beirut and educated in Paris, so I would say I have a unique background. All of this originally led me into the chemistry field. I obtained my PhD in physical chemistry from Boston University in 1978 and in 1987 went back to obtain my MBA.
I've taught portraiture and lighting technique courses at the New England School of Photography in 2001 and at the Continuing Education Program in Concord every year since 2003.
As a professional photographer for over 20 years, I photograph people because I love to capture their personalities and create moments they'll be able to look back at and enjoy for generations.
When I'm not photographing, I'm usually hiking in the White Mountains in New Hampshire (working on that 4,000 footer list) or traveling to places around the world. Paris is always a frequent special destination for me.
