Well, where should I begin? I think I should take it from the beginning. Ok, I was a sickly kid on the verge of death... Well that is sort of the way my mother presented it to me. So, having a protective mother and all that, I found my solitude in drawing at a very young age.
I have been doing art of some sort ever since second grade. I used to think that it was great being in high demand and doing art projects instead of being in class learning boring stuff. I have no regrets about being those days, as it lead me to be creative.
By the time I left the public school system, art had been deeply embedded in my being. I went to art school at night and worked various jobs and as a photographer during the day until Uncle Sam said sign on the dotted line cause I have a war here in Viet Nam I want you to lend a hand with. As it turns out I never left the western hemisphere, seems ole Uncle Sam decided that I would be better off spying on them there commies. So he puts me on a ship and gave me a darkroom all to myself, lots of film, chemicals and time to hone my photography skills.
When Uncle Sam was done with me, I first went into the aero space industry as a draftsman and illustrator until I landed a job with an advertising agency. Also during this time I attended classes at Newark School of Art in Newark NJ, School of Visual Arts, and the New School both in New York City.
I worked on a carving project for Ted Turners, Vermejo Park Ranch located in Raton and Taos County, New Mexico. I was one of four woodcarvers along with about a dozen furniture makers working on this project for his new lodge. We carved 16 headboards and several other pieces. A total of 96 pieces.

I carved this Rio Grande Cutthroat for the lodges computer desk.

This is one of the bear headboard I carved for the Bear Room. It features the mother bear along with her babies playing in the trees of the forest.
