A snapshot gallery into a glimpse of my artistic journey…


Left to Right/Top to Bottom: Auditioning as Ronald Backenbaum for John Water’s Hairspray in the Summer of 1986 (My brothers friend is in the film instead of me because they were filming during exam week and would only excuse me if I was a theater student 😦  ), Backstage as a Bearenstain Bear at Dorney Park in 1994 in Allentown, Pa. Handing a drawing of Boris to his daughter Sara Karloff at the 1999 Monster Bash in Pittsburg Pa, My first solo exhibit at Borders Books cafe in 1999 for the MOBA 2000 Calendar release in Whitehall, Pa.


Left to Right/Top to Bottom:  Slamming a poem with choreography done in collaboration with Sandra Kessel for Mayfair Community Arts Festival in Allentown, Pa & Discussing my work at Barbara Martyska’s 2nd Sunday Salon in South Whitehall Township in 2003. Performing a reading of my play Anticipating Bardot with Rafael Canizares (pictured), Raphel Berrien & Dolores Ulrich at Metropolitan Communty Church of the Lehigh Valley Coffee Cafe in Allentown, Pa, two paintings on display at the annual Halloween Show at PopMart Gallery in Bethlehem, Pa. in 2004


Left to Right/Top to Bottom: In 2005 I was the roaming audio stage manager for the travelling street theater version of Don Quixote of Bethlehem performed by Touchstone Theater Ensemble & Community actors for multiple Blocks in South Side Bethlehem, Pa. Another piece in the 2005 Halloween PopMart Exhibit in Bethlehem, Pa.  The colorful piece I did in collaboration with fellow local Artist (whom I was dating at the time despite her being 20 yrs my senior) Barbara Hughes. She drew the figure I created the background on exhibit at Touchstone Theater, Bethlehem Pa.  and my Pig Painting being discussed by onlookers at the Chen Arts Group Exhibit in Allentown, Pa both in 2006.


On The Left: The section of the flower mosaic I helped create for the wall of the Wildflower Cafe in South side Bethlehem in conjunction with C.A.B. (Community Artists of Bethlehem) in 2008. On The Right: Group Photo & Performing with The Improv Class I took in 2016. Improv is definitely a lot harder than you can imagine. Although, I tempted to revisit it at some point.

So there ya go, a little glimpse into a varied artistic history..always changing, always growing.
