Fine Art/Identifying Artist Name of Etching

Question
Etching
Etching  
Hi Andrew~
I have done a far amount of research (online) to identify this artist's signature to no avail. I also looked at the artist signature site that you have recommended to others. I'm assuming this is an etching as it has a raised border around the print. The print is signed in pencil. Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks for your time.

Please take a look at this list of appraisers http://ifaacertified.com/locate.html to see if there is one near you. I recommend contacting one of them or one of the auction houses below to get more information on your piece.
