From 3rd grade (elementary school) until high school graduation, he studied & played the viola and performed every year in student orchestras(1st & 2nd chair). He performed one season with the Connecticut All State Student Orchestra while in high school.
He enlisted into the United States Air Force in 1969. After earning a USAF certificate in electronics, he was stationed in Tokyo until his return to the US in1972(honorably discharged).
In 1974, he returned to Japan and has been a resident ever since.

He has been entertaining regularly with magic and comedy at house parties, schools and company events in Tokyo & Yokohama since 1978.

For 10 years(1976-1986) on a weekly schedule, he visited children's English language classrooms and conducted fun and exciting seminars that taught English with magic and comedy. These were a chain of classrooms located throughout Japan and called 'Obunsha LL' (operated by the publishing company, Obunsha).
