Worked most of my life either in bookstores or opera. Before moving to Sweden, I last was living in Denver, Colorado, where I first worked for the Central City Opera, then twelve years at the Tattered Cover Bookstore. Through it all, I kept trying to be an artist, but aside from one show in Pasadena and a couple of entries in the American Water Color Society and small museum exhibitions in Connecticut, never really found the time or discipline: too bookish, peripatetic, and methodical. Now my blog is my main creative venue.
