I was born in 1950, at Glendale California into a career navy family. While growing up we were stationed mainly in the Washington DC and San Diego areas, And it was there I developed my life long interest and love of ships and trains. After serving in the Army's Nike Missile Program in the late 1960's, I went on to a career in computers working aboard many Pacific Fleet ships. While concurrently serving in the field artillery of the CA National Guard. In 2002 we relocated to the Eastern Sierras. And in 2005 we moved to Gardnerville Nevada, where I started a full time art studio.
In 2007 I began writing about the ships that I'd painted, modeled, and studied for so long. In April 2008 I published my first book title. Apart from painting and writing, We also enjoy reading, working out at the local gym and martial arts. As well as dining out and traveling Nevada and the West. I currently reside in Nevada with my India born wife Swarn, and the two family cats Cozy and Tasha.
