Brief Bio

I have had a life-long interest in art and poetry, but graduated from the University of Glasgow, Scotland with an MD degree. During my medical career, I continued to paint and write poetry and have published a book, “ Memories & Milestones” of selected poems and paintings in 2007. I have had numerous shows of my work in New England and am currently working on another book of poems and paintings.
