About the Artist
I was born in North Carolina and my parents moved to various parts of the USA, Germany and The Philippines (my favourite place). Soon after visiting Expo 67 in Montreal, I transferred to the University of British Columbia, met my wife, and have lived in Canada ever since. I
have 2 children and 5 grandchildren. Hard to keep up with Rita!

Art has always been a hobby, not a way of making money for me. Instead I choose to become an architect and City Planner. This was also a way of expressing concepts about the environment.
