About me

Industry Arts
Location New York, New York, United States
Introduction I began actively pursuing my interest in art when I was in graduate school at NYU where I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology. This focused on the visual arts, first as a photographer and then as an early explorer in video art. My video works were produced at Channel 13's Experimental TV Lab, and as artist-in-residence at Syracuse University. One of them--Paint--was chosen to appear in the first video art exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, and is part of their permanent collection. I then pursued a career as an independent toy and game inventor. I've created and licensed all types of toys and games, the most well-known of which is Tickle Me Elmo. Seven years ago, I starting making art again. These websites show some of the body of work I am creating as a contemporary visual artist. Selections of my art have been shown at a one-person exhibit at Broadway Windows, the Washington Square Galleries small works show, the Red Eft Gallery, and The Noho 2008 Art Walk (in which I was awarded the prize for excellence in art).
