Taught high school English in the New York City School System for 36 years.

I'm an avid Route 66 traveler and have driven the entire route as well as its many spurs and alignments and lost pieces of the road.

I have an article in the Route 66 Magazine (Summer 2014 edition). Currently working on an article on the bridges in the film adaption of John Steinbeck's classic "The Grapes of Wrath" for the same magazine.

Currently photographing the bridges of Route 66 for a pictorial/narrative book.
