I went to Brown University in Providence and stayed in the area. I started a non-profit puppet theater in 1970, The Puppet Workshop, and it went out of business in 1993. Since then, I started working as a story teller, face painter, and arts and crafts teacher. I am a survivor of sexual abuse, and after the memories returned in 1994. I spent much time and money finding out their truth. Before that, I had had two marriages, and two children. Over the last 20 years, I have dealt with depression, went on disability, met a wonderful woman, and slowly returned to writing, teaching arts and crafts, and face painting.

School Story

I went to Brown University in Providence and stayed in the area. I started a non-profit puppet theater in 1970, The Puppet Workshop, and it went out of business in 1993. Since then, I started working as a story teller, face painter, and arts and crafts teacher. I think my time at Cubberly were good years. Jim Parsons and Mac Kaplowitz had good times. They prepared me for Brown, and teacher David Buck can take the credit for my forty years as a puppeteer, storyteller, face painter, and arts and crafts teacher. I will never forget being in social studies when John F. Kennedy was killed, the graduation prank when Richard Kilbourne played on us with the gym locker locks, and, of course, graduation. I just took the time to look at th list of members of our class who have passed away, and the names bring whole days back for me--so sad that they are gone. We were a special class at a special time, and in our lives, we have lived through years of heddy success and decades of war. I watched the 60s show on television, and thought it missed everything.
