He came to Canada with his father in 1947. He hired on at Ontario Hydro as a labourer but was soon working for them as an illustrator. This lasted for ten years. In the 1960’s he did occasional editorial cartoons for the Globe & Mail when James Reidford was on holidays. His work was noticed by the editors of the Citizen [Ottawa] and he was hired as the editorial page cartoonist for them.
