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 sojourn in a Benedictine monastery, my life has been occupied with studying and working in animation. My mentors were John Canemaker and the late Tissa David. Among my favorite things are watercolor, crochet, afternoon tea, musical theatre, puppetry, figure-drawing, and vegetarian cooking.
