Dave Burstein said : His artwork was displayed at New York's Museum of Modern Art. He conducted the San Francisco Chamber Opera Society and wrote the score for a movie, "Smog Patterns," shown on PBS. He has a patent for a "Construction Technique for an Airplane Wing," and was a noted model airplane designer, an accomplished archer, and an occasional race car driver.
In this time of great specialization and focus on the nuance, it is a relief that there remain people who have such love for and experience such joy in the world that they want to see it with large eyes and embrace it with playful mind. Renaissance people is still among us, except that they count one less today.
