It's "Valentino" on my birth certificate but that's a bit much ;)
Coming from an artistic background "and family" it's been um,, unique from the start.
I'll keep the stories short and just say that we used to give walking tours of the house I grew up in. My father, being one of the most prolific artists I have ever known, in multiple mediums, seemed to be a lightning rod of interest to anyone who caught a glimpse of the man in action. The consummate motivator of children, he taught elementary art for almost 40yrs. His students still look me up on social media as the name is the same ;)
When we weren't home, which seemed like ever, I was literally raised on Fire Island and the Great South Bay was my back yard and playground.
It was a blessed childhood growing up on Long Island, NY surrounded by some of the top beaches and marine habitats in the world.
An avid sailor, adventurer and outdoors man you will see a nautical bent to my work with a side of nature and a sprinkling of the moon and stars.
True to my creative nature, my path through this life has not been particularly linear, but it did start early. I've had several more traditional careers which always seemed to be defined or were buoyed by my more creative view of life, but one way or the other have focused and refined my unique skill set and vision.
I hope you find the photographs on these pages pleasing.
