Biography


Born in Syracuse,NY under a libra sky, I was 9 years old when my parents, recognizing an art ability in me, enrolled me in art classes. I learned the basics of art development for the next three years. In college I struggled between my love of art and my love of nature,  briefly majoring in art. But it was nature that won out then and I graduated with a degree in Environmental studies. After college I helped create an environmental education program in the Poconos of Pennsylvania which later won several state awards.  In 1979 I met a woman on her way to Alaska. Before I knew it I was on a west  bound plane. We ended up getting married in Anchorage in 1980 and living there for five years where we fished for salmon, panned for gold, sat out under the northern lights, hiked and cross country skied. Nearly forty years later we are still married and have traveled extensively throughout  north America and Canada, have slept in hostels throughout Scotland, have camped in the Serengeti in Africa, seen the new year in at the Eiffel Tower in Paris and been amazed by Gaudi's creations in Barcelona. I lived for twenty years in the northern Adirondacks, restored antiques for thirty years, built houses and raised a couple sons. I was one of the founders  of the Wild Center in Tupper Lake NY, an internationally known environmental education facility which educates thousands of people a year. I now live in a solar powered house I built myself on 48 acres in central New York near Cooperstown, where I make interesting things in wood and capture nature on canvas.
