Personal History

I was born in (then West) Berlin in 1962. I came to the USA in 1970, settling in Washington D.C. for the high school years, and finally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

B.A. Astronomy, B.A. Studio Art, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, in 1985. Technical illustrator since 1988: research and conceptual graphics for the scientific community, popular press, and corporate clients. 3d CG art since 1994, and stereoscopic illustration and 3d photography since 1997.

Aside art and family life, I love airships, bicycle road racing, astronomy, and spacey ambient electronic music. I also like the art of M.C. Escher, Frederick Edwin Church, Maxfield Parrish, Alexander Calder, Pal Imre, Jim Burns, Brian Lewis, Edward Weston, Hans Knuchel, Lynn Butler, Larry Ferguson, Stanislaw Lem, Ayn Rand, Edward Tufte, Brian Eno, Vangelis, Diblo Dibala, Frank Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Coleman Hawkins, Ligeti, Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, and Santana!
