I was born right as The Great Depression hit, and in dead of Winter. Therefore I�m a Capricorn, and all that entails.

I was in the Air Force and later became an academic nomad, roaming the world, not knowing what I was doing. Totally clueless. I�m amazed that I�m not dead, in the bughouse, or a paraplegic by now.

I worked for James Van Allen for over thirty years as a scientific illustrator, and after retiring, I set up a painting studio in the downtown area of Iowa City.
