one of my favorite self portraits, shot in The Hamptons

I have worn many hats in my almost four decades on this planet. I have been a singer, actor, journalist, writer, promoter, chef (private and restaurant), visual artist, marketing manager, software technician, comedian, performer, professional wrestler, stunt man, dancer, film maker and photographer. You can also now add CEO, CFO, Tax Man,Insurance administration, personal assistant, accountant and "illegal" lawyer and many more

To say I have many passions would be an understatement. I appreciate many facets of culture, pop and classical, from art to music to culinary to fashion to movies. I follow the high-brow, the low-brow, the inbetween, the mainstream, the outsider and whatever else I can get my hands on. I love Vinyl toys, graffiti, professional wrestling, Mixed Martial Arts and comic books as much as I love the paintings of Gustav Klimt or the work of Stefan Sagmeister and the sounds of Thelonious Monk.

I have no true main passion, but I love reviewing books and films. I still have extreme love for graffiti and street art and I have reached out further with my digital artwork mostly focused on work inspired by professional wrestling.

Most of my art and photosl can be seen on my Flickr page.
