Author-Artist-Film Maker-Designer/Builder-Business Person




As a matter of personal history I grew up in West Los Angeles in the ‘Happy Daze’ of the 50’s and 60’s. I graduated from University High School in winter of 1961 an Art major.

I joined the Marine Corps in July 1961 and served until July of 1965. My M.O.S. was 1461, ‘Illustrator’, and I helped prepare classified briefing material to the Senior Officers at Camp Smith Hawaii, F.M.F. PAC. FLEET H.Q. It was an interesting job, and a great duty.

I’ve been married since 1966 and helped raise two children.

I love to read, especially: ancient history, American history, metaphysics, new physics, 20th century warfare, Native American history and culture.
I also like building, interior design and the organization and development of just about anything.

In addition to my working travel I have enjoyed vacation travel in: France, Switzerland, Holland and Brazil.
