I am the West coast representative of a prominent art gallery located on Manhattan's Upper East Side and its partner gallery in Vienna, Austria, both specializing in European Old Masters and Classic Modern. I lived for just over a decade in Vienna, Austria, reporting on and then working for a prominent Catholic banking family known for its glorious private art collection, known to be the largest such collection in Europe.
I have also written a novel, a collection of essays, and a non-fiction history of World War II southeastern Europe. I am from Grosse Pointe Farms, attended Columbia University and the American University of Cairo. My writing has appeared frequently in The Wall Street Journal (Europe and NY editions), as well as in The NY Times, the International Herald Tribune, Foreign Affairs, etc. I wrote a financial column on the traditional practices of historic Swiss banking and of Swiss political economy for the Ludwig von Mises Institute, entitled "Swiss Watch".
This site is a compilation of my writings and an expression of my aesthetic outlook.
