Skip is a retired house painter. He and his wife have a home in the Adirondacks where he built an art studio in the garage. He enjoys doing artwork in different mediums, but especially watercolors, and has written a memoir of his childhood years in northern New Jersey, when being outdoors was almost like being in the Adirondacks. His father taught him how to develop his own pictures in the 50's, and since then he has taken thousands of photos, including many over the last 20 years while hiking and kayaking in the mountains, rivers, and lakes that make the ADK such a special place.
In 30 Stories and A Little Adventure, Skip weaves a number of tales about his childhood into a pattern of memories that stretch into later years, and define the innocence of a generation growing up in earlier times.
