As far back as I can remember, I was fascinated by art and music. I spent many hours copying the art in comic books of all types, from Mad magazine to Disney characters. It certainly seemed like I was headed for a career in commercial art. Until fate stepped in . . .
At the same time I was exploring the world of visual arts, I also had a great love for music. While playing Sax in the middle school school orchestra I landed a summer scholarship to music college. By the time I got to high school I was a singer / songwriter / guitarist and started on my 20+ years as a professional Rock and Roll musician.
In the early '80s, at some point between bands I somehow landed in the advertising field. I helped start an ad agency and eventually learned to do everything involved in that business. I was a Photographer, Art Director, Designer, Creative Director, Copywriter, Video Producer — you name it I did it. Then after more than a decade as an "adman" I retired . . . sort of.
After leaving the agency I dove into the 'magical' new world of personal computers and emerged as a Web Designer and Digital Artist. It was like making a full circle back to where I started and I've been enjoying my rebirth as a visual artist ever since.
