Having lived in the city since the early 1960s, along with stage director Nicole Dreiska (whom he later married for a time), he established Facets Multimedia in 1975, first in a church with projectors placed where the choir once stood, and eventually in a permanent home on Fullerton Avenue, where it continues to thrive today.
