A New Jersey native, I received a BFA in Film and Television at New York University, and many years of instruction in drawing the human figure at the Art Students' League of New York. Excepting a brief but fruitful sojourn in a Benedictine monastery, my life has been largely occupied with studying and working in animation. Among my favorite things are afternoon tea, musical theatre, puppetry, figure drawing, watercolor painting, Fiestaware, English blue-and-white transferware, Italian Maiolica, vegetarian cooking and art museums. Personal and liturgical prayer and meditation are essential aspects of my daily life, as well as a bit of hatha yoga.
