A professional writer and editor since graduating Emerson College in 1964, he discovered that collage work helped him to relax and avoid writers' block. He has published a number of books, articles and columns on American literary, photographic and social history; and rock music and pop culture. Today he writes a weekly humor column, American Scene published on line and in The Grafton News.

He has won awards at the Blackstone Valley Artist Association's Spring and Fall shows and at the Grafton Fine Arts & Music Festival.   In 2009 he was juried into the Arts Worcester Biennial Exhibit and in 2010 into Goddard Houses' In And Out of the Box. In his popular collage workshops and private classes he encourages artists of all ages to develop and express their own unique vision.

"Yet, in their own way, the artist and the scientist hold to the tradition of experimentation and each would agree to respect the authority of the imagination." ~Paul Gwiazdowski
