Artist Statement

I'm interested in everything. When I'm really interested in a subject, I dig deep to find out more and like to turn it into articles and books that have broad appeal. My special interests are Philanthropy, the arts -- especially visual arts, choral music, and theatre, Jewish subjects, and Latin America. I lived in Ecuador as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the early 1970s and my love for that beautiful country and its welcoming people has never dimmed.
