Little Hugo was born on September 10, 1942 in the Bronx, New York, to Marie, a retired nurse, and Michael a psychologist who enjoyed reading books about life after death. He had a rough childhood and struggled to make friends. His loneliness led him to discover that he had a special talent; he could see and communicate with loved ones and strangers that have passed away. Sometimes they would give him messages from other people who would depart to help them prepare for their departure.

He became known as Little Hugo and people from all around the world came to see him to ask about their loved ones. 


In his book “After life experiences” Little Hugo stated that it was difficult for people to admit that their loved ones never leave their side.  He believed that the majority of people only see the ending of their existence, and do not believe that there could life after death. 

Little Hugo realized that his talent has given him the opportunity to be like a bridge between the two worlds. He thought humanity could benefit from his talent and find answers to all of the world mysteries that never been resolved. However as his popularity grew so did his critics and he received death threats for his information.


His life was cut short in a traffic accident and he died at the age of 22 on December 10, 1964, in San Francisco California. Was he taken away to prevent him further pain through people criticism and speculations? Was he really able to communicate with those who have passed before us?

Critics have discussed these questions and so far they have not been able to find a logical or scientific explanation as to why he could interact with the non-existent life. He will always be remembered as the Little Hugo that could talk to the departed ones, something that is beyond our rational understanding.
