“… a third generation artist. My formative years were spent in Rockland County in an avant-garde household with cultural forces such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage. Their presences strongly influence me.

At 17 I moved to New York City, attended then quit the School of Visual Arts, and became artist’s assistant to Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. I also continued my art education through life experiences such as tending bar at Andy Warhol’s parties in the Factory.
