About

I have been experimenting with the printed word most of my adult life, trying to make commissioned work or what flows from my own pen both readable and beautiful.

It all started in the public schools of Westfield, Massachusetts, where I joined friends in producing a daily newspaper. And the adventure continues here in Hales Corners, Wisconsin, where I work with and for a fascinating circle of creative individuals and independent publishers.
