Artists Statement:
 
“Everyone has to be born someplace, so, I guess New York City, The Bronx, was as good a place for me to enter this world as any. Upon graduation from high school, I attended “The School of Visual Arts," in NYC, (formerly, Cartoonist and Illustrators School.) I worked at various advertising agencies, both while I was in college and after, doing advertising design. 
 

In 1956, I emigrated from NYC to Los Angeles, CA. Gaining employment at Douglas Aircraft, E B (Electric Boat,) and Ramo-Wooldridge Corp. At the time, I also attended the Art Center College of Design to further my education in commercial and advertising photography.
 
In 1963, a turning point for me, I decided to join the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, as a patrol officer. Quite a departure I would say. 
 
In 1974, I, with partners, founded Design3 advertising, an advertising agency, specializing in brochures, annual reports, corporate identity, and photography. I also passed the state exam and received my Real Estate license. 
 

My work, both paintings and photography have been shown at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and at various outdoor art shows. My interests include: photography (nature and outdoor,) painting what I photograph, reading science fiction/fantasy, and model railroading.”
