About Me I was born in Philadelphia, USA, in 1964, and have lived all over the world including India, Africa, the UK and Australia, where I worked on a cattle station in the Kimberley before starting work as a photographic assistant in 1988. I started working as a freelance photographer in London in 1991, worked in India and South East Asia for two years in 1998/9, then lived in Bristol for three years between 2000 and 2002 completing a Master of Arts. I have been based in Barcelona, Spain since 2003.
