Who I Am

I was a pure math major at college but later went to UCLA Film School and then to the BBC as an Apprentice. I was the creator and producer of over 78 hours of primetime wildlife television, co-founder of a film history museum, and past program manager for the first global circumnavigation atmospheric flight (Voyager; 1986). I have worked for more than thirty years with the leaders in aerospace and space exploration. I also helped manage and create several international historic events (the memorabilia of which are on permanent display in national institutions in America, Germany, and France as well as touring internationally). My daytime job for more than forty years has been as a literary agent. Born and raised in New York City and Switzerland, I moved some years ago and love where I live now best of all: Gila, New Mexico.
