After World War II he attended the Capitol Radio Engineering Institute and began his career in radio and television at NBC. He was a radio and television engineer for more than 30 years with the District of Columbia NBC affiliate, WRC where he was part of the team that covered presidential inaugurals and White House events. He was also the radio engineer for many District celebrities including Willard Scott and Ed Walker on WRC's Joy Boys of Radio.
