I started drawing and painting at a young age, but when I got married and assumed all the responsibilities of raising a family, I stopped for many years. It was only when my wife convinced me to join a local Gilbert and Sullivan community theater group that I discovered the joys of creating and painting sets. Working on that large a scale at that speed was liberating, and after a while I decided to return to working with oil paints and canvasses. Since I've retired from the classroom (I taught physics at Evanston Township High School for many years), I've found more time to engage in the arts. I've also done a lot more traveling, and when I travel, I take lots of photographs with the idea of making paintings of them firmly in mind.
In addition to all these creative efforts, I've also created an educational consulting firm, Geni Consulting, and have written two books on the philosophy and strategies that I developed as a teacher. If you want to know more, go to my educational website, www.geniconsulting.org.
