About Me Born in NYC, early achiever, worked the Boardwalk, Department Store Exec, mind-altering exposure to terrific music, incomparable art, endless rivers of opinions, points of view, the World of Drugs. Morphed in SF in the late 60's,, U.S.P.O. graveyard shift, Human Be-ins, Diggers & Panhandle, Haight Clinic Vol, incarceration, exoneration, rapture and exhilaration leading to immigration to the West County. Photos, Gloria, pooches, chickens, goats and geese, a paradisical ' crate' on the river, moonlit meadows, sea breezes, trips to Europe, Alaska, Santa Fe, NYC, work as a photojournalist - jazz fests, local media, sundry publications. Massaged ego, skinny wallet. Alan Freed, the Apollo, realized dream with "The Mystery Train" , my personal, air-conditioned, vista domed luxury spa with room for everyone. I still write - satire, memoirs, diatribes, soliloquys, short stories, shaggy doggerel, nasty critiques, take pictures, indulge my fantasies , and enjoy hanging with fond memories of Gloria, and my poodles, Vinny Schwartz and Chloe
