He was born in New Jersey, and attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts as a student of Thomas Anshutz. He then worked as a staff artist for the Philadelphia Press with George Luks, William Glackens, and John Sloan. Based in New York, he traveled extensively and also did theater and film work.
