I was born in Omaha , Nebraska on July 28th 1961. I was raised a Roman Catholic and I attended Catholic schools the first few years of my life. Art was encouraged when I was growing up and all of my family members have artistic ability.
When I was 14 I saved up my lunch money to buy a guitar and I have been involved with music ever since. I still love to play and music has also been one of the main subjects of my art.
When I was 18 I joined the U.S.Navy.I seved as a signalman on the U.S.S. Harlan County LST 1196.
I was fortunate enough to see a good deal of the world.I was especially grateful for the chance to spend several months in Italy where I visited many of the ancient monuments and museums particularly the Vatican.
I did a lot of drawing while I was a sailor and I painted several murals on the ship as well as seascapes.
After my discharge I studied painting with the Italian Master, Oscar Sormani. I also attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha as well as Northeast Technical Community College where I studied painting and dramatic arts.
In 1992 I opened "The Midnight Art Warehouse" an alternative site to display mine and others art as well as a place where musicians could meet.
I love to bicycle and I enjoy long bicycle camping trips. I have ridden across several different states in the Midwest, solo.
Recently I have been learning about web development. I began to learn HTML so I could put up my own web site but as time progresses I find myself eager to learn other interesting things about the subject.
Since it is very much in its infancy the possibilities are limitless. I hope to be able to continue to improve the look of this site.
If you are interested in learning HTML go to my friendKev Judge's create your own web page"It's very informative and its free! I can't thank him enough for the friendly advice he has given me.
I also recomenddynamicdrive.comfor DHTML. Thats where I got the initial script that is changing the colors in your monitor.
(I did have to modify it a little though.)
