I.M. Pei's Hancock Tower in Boston with plywood panels in the curtain wall, circa 1973
After Cornell, I spend a year in the Civil Engineering Department at MIT studying structural engineering, with an office in the Main Building overlooking the Charles River and I.M. Pei's Hancock Tower (at the time covered with plywood panels after glass from the curtain wall began falling to the ground), 1975-1976.

My first job in New York City is with Poor, Swanke, Hayden, and Connell (under the supervision of Der Scutt); there I meet the young Donald Trump and work briefly on his Commodore Hotel (AKA Grand Hyatt) conversion near Grand Central Station, circa 1978.

Still living in Manhattan but now working for Lee Pomeroy (partners at the time with Jack Lebduska), I work on several projects, including this "Conservation Center" for Con Edison on the ground floor of the Chrysler Building, circa 1978.

I join a band which we eventually name Rollo; I design the cover for our first "45" record, recorded in the legendary A-1 Studios (which had been established by Herb Abramson, co-founder of Atlantic Records, in the 1960s) circa 1980
