I began my education in Ohio as an architecture student. I changed my major to design and graduated with a BA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati. I moved to Pittsburgh where I designed print collateral for major corporations. In Pittsburgh, I met renowned designer Paul Rand. With his encouragement, I enrolled in the Kunstgewerbeshule in Basel, Switzerland, studying typography and graphic design for 3 years. I traveled extensively during this period; I visited every country in Europe. In 1969, I accepted a teaching position at the Philadelphia College of Art. I moved to Los Angeles in 1971 to work as an art director at Capitol Records. I left Capitol to work as an independent designer and photographer. I was immediately attracted to the people and places of Los Angeles. I was re-born as a street photographer. I spent two years shooting spontaneous happenings on the Hollywood Boulevard “Walk of Fame”. I amassed thousands of images; many were published in “Zoom”, “Photo”’, ‘” Creative Camera” and other magazines. They were also exhibited in both the US and Europe. Some are included in the collections of museums. I have been shooting photos for over fifty years now. I exhibit regularly in galleries and online; I have thousands of followers on my photo sites. Three books of my photos have been published: Art Deco LA, Movie Palaces, and Bijou. In 2017, I founded Small Books, an independent publishing imprint.
