Born and bred in NYC: public schools, HS of Music & Art, stickball every day until dark. Rabid Dodger fan until they fled to CA. Now afflicted with the Mets. Doomed. To Syracuse U.: bowling nights, resting days; classes a distraction. Saved by the Draft. Two years inhaling France; then, freelance cartooning; Esquire, Colliers, Saturday Review. Saw a TV storyboard: revelation. Wrote and boarded one, hired by Benton & Bowles. Off on the yellow brick road to another shop as Creative Supervisor, another as Creative Director, then President, and opened his own agency. Through the years met, worked with, and knew scores of characters on both agency and client side of the battle to save the world from a life devoid of ways to spend money. A never boring, raucous crowd of scalawags and saints; inspired and otherwise. Coming away with a closetful of stories just waiting to be told.
