After a Batchelor's Degree in Fine Arts, with a minor in psychology from Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, CA in 1968, (now Cal Arts in Sylmar, CA) I was drafted and spent 2 years in the military. A few years after returning home, then marrying, my wife & I opened our own computer graphics company in Lawndale, CA. Though always interested in writing, my literary interests were put aside by business until I retired in 1996. In 2010 I was hired serendipitously to fully illustrate two children's books by a new company's CEO. This re-ignited my desires of combining my writing & carricature skills to eventually publish children's books of my own. It was the perfect culmination of timing & synergy. My new friend reinvigorated my authorship dreams. I wrote & illustrated my first one, with a larger piece book I just finished on December 31st, 2013. I hope to create dozens more.
