In Peru on Machu Picchu with my daughter Susanna

Originally from Greenwich, Connecticut, I have lived in the Asheville North Carolina area since 1989. I have a Master's degree in Ecology from the University of Vermont, and have worked as a research scientist, military officer, realtor, lecturer, painter and illustrator. I have also  lived in Vermont, Georgia, Korea, Brazil, Colorado and Connecticut before settling down in beautiful Western North Carolina.

During my career as a graphic artist, I  completed more than 2,000 commissioned pen and ink drawings of private homes,  buildings and churches.  Distinguished clients include Former President and Mrs. George Bush Sr., Governor and Mrs. James B. Hunt Jr., United States Ambassador and White House Chief of Staff of Protocol Joseph Verner Reed, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Holden, George Sanders, the Estate of Guy Lombardo and well-known golf course designer Tom Fazio.  If you are interested in purchasing a print of one of my drawings, please visit my art website

I am also a painter, and am currently working on an art and environmental defense project Liza's Reef, a series of paintings of an imaginary coral reef. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of environmental issues, and to raise money for environmental organizations and an orphanage on Fiji in the South Pacific.
