Biography


I am a practicing orthopedic surgeon in Phoenix, Arizona.   I was born in New York City and spent much of my youth on the East Coast and Europe.  After living in Massachusetts for most of my career, I moved to the Southwest 14 years ago.  I enjoy hiking, photography and painting in my true outdoor love, the national parks.  I am a member of the Pastel Society of New Mexico, the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico and the Arizona Pastel Artists Association.
