He attended the University of Dayton and the Dayton Art Institute, studying Advertising Design.   In 1962, he began working as a graphic designer at NCR.  Walt retired from NCR in 1994 as a manager of their computer graphic department.  After retirement he became a full time caricature artist.  In 1960 Walt married Kay Squires.
