I was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1931. After serving in the US Navy for four years I earned an MBA from Xavier University in Ohio. My professional/life interests have been somewhat diverse. I was a banker in America during the day while at night I performed as an actor/playwright in avant garde theatre. In 1997 I married Ineke Bosman, a Dutch physician. She and I spend our time now in The Hague, Holland, and in Nkoranza, Ghana, where Ineke had established a home for mentally disabled children. These children have filled my life and heart with joy. I enjoy writing and teaching and I am pleased to be a part of The Writers Drawer.
