Born in 1943, now a retired teacher. I attended high school in Santa Monica, went to Santa Monica CC and graduated from Long Beach state university in 1966. Working in wood and clay. Began in chainsaw carving, then hand carving and now fiber clay. I love being a sculptor. I enjoy writing and had a book published in 2019 titled "Marshallville", a fictional western. I play golf, usually a bogie round. I also enjoy cowboy fast draw. I travel the country going to fast draw competitions. I was the 2018 National champion. I spend 6 months in Scottsdale, AZ and 6 months on Bainbridge Island, WA.
