When I was a kid, as soon as I saw that massive dragon on the edge of town I always felt right at home. After graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in photojournalism, I moved to Crested Butte led by the intuition to call this place my own. The plan was to be a ski bum for a bit and then grow up. Turns out I fell in love with more than just this small, quaint, funky town that has an inescapably special place in my heart. I am so lucky to be married and raising my family here, with a career doing what I love. With Third Eye I combine two of my favorite things - my passion is being creative, and I love working with all kinds of amazing people.

I have had 4 black lab dogs since I have moved to Crested Butte, 3 at one time!

Although I have lived the small, mountain life for 20 years, I am a proud New Yorker and yes, Yankees fan too! 

I still am a New Yorker at heart.

We were combining three families for a multi-generational shoot. She was professional, listened to our needs & preferences and was efficient both in the planning and execution of the photo shoot. The result was amazing shoots that we’ll have for a lifetime with our children and grandparents.
