“I’ve had a love for the sea and sea creatures all my life. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I always enjoyed working with my hands: painting, wood-carving, building model airplanes. After high school I did a stint as a NYC firefighter, then went to college and dental school. I used my artistic and creative skills in dentistry making people beautiful and healthy. I retired from my practice 20 years ago but have been involved with volunteer dentistry on Maui.
“My favorite creations involve inhabitants of the ocean. Each piece is individually inspired and created by hand from my memory and imagination. In addition to ceramics I am also an avid surfer, snowboarder, fisherman, and free diver.”
