When did you move from Newark to Manhattan?
1969. I was 19, and I had a job at the Lovable Underwear Company, at 200 Madison Avenue. That’s true. I was doing back then, in the days before computers, what they called paystubs and mechanicals. You have a glue pot, a tea square, a razor blade, and you physically put together advertisements. That was the year I got my first piece published in a magazine called Fusion.
