The job of sharing and nurturing the creative process in others has allowed my own work to remain fresh, experimental and continually evolving, and I embrace the overlap between my roles as art maker and art teacher. I am happiest, and I believe my work is at its best when the barriers between approaches, processes, materials and even function become a bit blurred.

I did my Bachelor’s and Master’s work at Kutztown University, and have done course work at numerous other institutions. I live in a relatively quiet spot in Southeastern Pennsylvania with my wife of 21 years, and our 2 children (one is currently a junior in art school, and the other is leaning toward his passion in theater and music).
