About the Author

The artist worked as a painter, sculptor, poet & experimental electronic musician in San Francisco during the 1980's. His work was featured at numerous gallery, performance spaces, dance clubs and art events. The sculptures were site specific assemblages of salvaged electrical conduit and television sets which played either live broadcast or video tape signals. His poetry book "Didactic Engine of Beauty" is the culmination of 40 years free verse authorship.
