Teddy grew up in New York City. He was not like you or I. Teddy didn’t attend school instead he was homed schooled. He was home schooled because he had a severe illness and asthma. At the age of 7 he showed some interest in his future career. His parents always encouraged him to explore his interest in becoming a naturist.
