My wife and I are from Rochester, NY, but we have
built a home near Goose Cove on the Cabot Trail
and are Cape Breton residents for a minimum of
four months each year.

In real life, I am an emeritus professor of electrical
engineering, having taught at the Rochester
Institute of Technology for 19 years.  On occasion, I
dart into a phone booth and emerge as an
artist/photographer, specializing in digital computer
manipulations of my photographs.  I’ve won several
awards and, over the years, have done magazine
covers, corporate ads, and greeting card designs.   
I’m also one of the founders of a burglar/fire alarm
manufacturing company where I was a vice
president of engineering for 13 years before
leaving to teach.  I’m deeply interested in the arts
and have served on the boards of Rochester’s
professional theatre and the Rochester
Philharmonic Orchestra.  At RIT, I founded and
continue to manage The Performing Artists Concert
Series, now in it’s 17th season, which brings jazz
and classical music to campus.

In Rochester, I am a founding member of the Image
City Photography Gallery, and am currently an
Artist in Residence there.  Now that I am retired, I
have more time to devote to my lifelong love of art
and its creation.  I suppose that it’s inevitable that
my professional life has had some effect on my art.  
I like to think of myself  as a creative young senior
citizen who brings years of corporate, academic,
and arts experience to his work.  I admittedly am
prone to challenge what I consider foolishness and
have little patience with mission statements, team
building exercises and pretentious art-speak.  To
me, giclée is simply a good archival ink jet print!
