Graduated in Architectural Engineering in 1950, he then opened his furniture company in Pennsylvania 'Craft Associate' in 1952. He designed furniture (table, living room, sofa) but also many models of lighting (floor lamp, table lamp, chandelier, wall lamp) exceeding by its originality the style of Scandinavian Design in teak.
