I am a retired lithographer, having worked as a color separator for over 40 years in the litho trade. I have a BS degree in Industrial Education, and I taught High School graphic arts for 1 year, as well as several years of vocational school, and most recently for 4 years at Arizona State University, where I taught a course in applied color theory.

I am a bluegrass, and country musician, having played 5-string banjo, mandolin, and guitar. I was an army cook, and mess sgt. during the "Berlin Crisis", in about 1960. I've taught several classes of oil painting, and currently offer private lessons in oil painting.
