I am a dedicated Artist and Craftsman whose thirst for knowledge did not dissipate upon completion of my college degrees. Through life experiences and a solid educational background, I feel it is my time to give back to the community at large and inspire its students to live and learn in a creative and passionate way.

I have worked as a Cabinetmaker and Printmaker and maintained several work shops in a safe and secure manner. My experience is limitless and what we know and do not know we will learn together.

Projects may be assigned that will apply a multidisciplinary approach to Fine Art. Cross training is a proper tool in the Artist's toolbox.
