Former Group Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi, and Young & Rubicam Advertising. I left the commercial world to become a Plein Air Painter, yet my time at the agencies taught me some important aspects of design. My creative work has been published in the following:

The New Yorker, Saturday Evening Post, Scientific American, Harper's, The Atlantic Monthly, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Frankfurter Allgemeiner, Time, Le Monde, Vanity Fair and most national and international radio and television markets. I created the first joint venture film (Jeep) between the United States and China.


My paintings are in numerous private, hospital, corporate and university collections in the United States and Europe.
