After my discharge from the USAF, I decided to make Washington D.C. my home and worked as a photographer on Capitol Hill.

I always had a driving ambition to paint and draw so I entered The
American University as an art major. At this time I studied with the
satirical figure illustrator, Jose Perez and got involved with the art scene in Washington, which included noted sculptor, Frederic E. Hart. Europe always interested me so I moved and lived in Spain for two years.

After returning to the U.S., I came back to New York City, where I worked as a photographer again. Still wanting to be an artist, I moved to San Francisco and enrolled in the Academy of Art College, where I studied for five years. One of my instructors was the artist/illustrator, Howard Brodie. He is famous for his drawings of World War II while working for the newspaper "Stars & Stripes". He is also acclaimed for his courtroom illustrations of famous trials.

After graduation I returned to the Washington Area, where I continue to paint and draw.
