About Me

Interest  in art and photography  since childhood.

I was raised  near Chicago and made many trips to  the Art Institute, my music  school was just across the street.

Classically  trained violinist, switched to viola 1986.

Undergraduate:   University of Chicago

                                Indiana University

Medical School :

                  University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine 1973-1977,  M.D.

In private practice in Shortsville, New York since  1986

Over many years I have occasionally done water color paintings for friends, and attempts at artistic photography.

I got  serious in 2008  with purchase of a Nikon D40X with Tamron lens,  eventually got a D90 and it fell into a river.  Current camera Nikon D300s with Tamron 18-250 aspherical lens. 

I photograph almost everything, many interests.  I find myself moving more and more  in direction of abstract works, minimalism, but I love color and complexity. 

I also do woodworking and have built  2 violas and a violin  bow, with some tutelage.

I love classical music,   books on spirituality and philosophy , especially  the work of Avatar Adi Da  (check out  www.DaPlastique.com !), wine, neuropsychology, Neurofeedback,  ice hockey (Buffalo Sabres !).
