I grew up in NYC. I was an only child so I figured out early how to entertain and take care of myself. I was an above average student in high school. I was bored. I was a musician for about a year and realized that I was not cut out for that. Two members of that band are now famous. The point is I did not like the lifestyle. Went to college, majored in English then went to work in big time ad agencies in L.A. and NYC. I have created ad campaigns for everything from gasoline, automobiles, airlines and more. I have travelled and worked in England and Japan. I am very creative. Have been since day one. I have one son, an athlete and architect major. I am not jewish. But having grown up in NYC makes me one by proxy. I am optimistic. My glass is half full not half empty.
