He studied at the Carnegie Institute and the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and taught figure drawing at St. Petersburg College and the Morean Arts Center. His work has been published extensively, and he is the recipient of many awards and honors including recognition for his remarkable newspaper illustration. He was a prolific artist, exhibited his work throughout the U.S., and is included in many prestigious art collections including Raymond James Financial, St. Petersburg College, Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, and the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art.
