I enrolled in the high school. For industrial art in New York City. One of my classes was in architecture. My teacher selected me for a part time job in the architectural firm of Shreve Lamb and Harmon, one of the most famous architectural firms in NYC at the time. After high school I attended Pratt institute where I continued to study architecture. Shortly afterward I obtained my architectural license and enjoyed over 50 years in practice and specialized in Healthcare architecture.
Occasionally during my active career, I would try to do some painting and drawing but was not able to devote enough time to my artwork.

I added an art studio onto my home in Bergen County where I have lived with my wife for more than 50 years.
My paintings consist of my interpretation of personal photographs from my travels and from the Pinterest Website. I am especially inspired by the beautiful countrysides of Italy and Greece.
