with a 'Stand By Me' childhood, and like the other young guys in the neighborhood, I relished monster models, BB guns, and comic books. It didn't take long to find out, I was an artist too. Formative years turned into cars, being a musician, dating, and the tangibles of being a young man. The super-8 movie camera became a fascination, and high school offered a newspaper to scratch the surface of journalism. I entered the world of employment and found the position of graphic artist calling. I designed signs, billboards, and t-shirt art. Illustration, watercolor, and canvas work prompted me to become part of the gallery display and art show circuit. College years brought me back to the basics of art, and a seat on the university newspaper as a writer. At the University of Toledo I majored in computer imaging, and minored in photography. Entering the world of the multimedia recording studio, I discovered that my music and movie-making past converted into high end video production, complex audio projects, and the realm of supervisory management. The written word has come around to me again and has expanded into creative novel writing. To culminate all that I have done, my hope is that in some way, I have brought joy to people. I look forward to the future, making new friends, and sharing a touch of talent with the world.
