Born in Worcester, Massachusetts, the artist began painting after completing his education at his local college. When reported on by the St Ives Times, he was 23, and painting between Cornwall and the Brittany coast.
The review described him as '...a young American artist who has been working in St Ives for the past two months.' By 1915 he was back in the USA and living in Santa Barbara where he continued to paint. In 1918, he joined the Navy, and pioneered the construction of lighter-than-air craft, alongside his continuing exhibitions in art, solo and group. He died in Los Gatos, California.
