During the 1930s he was a resident of San Francisco and employed as an art teacher for the WPA Project.  He then moved to Greenwich Village in New York and taught at several eastern art schools.  Primarily a wood sculptor, his style was greatly influenced by extensive study of European Gothic and Romanesque sculpture.
