In 1994, my career as an artist started at Columbus College of Art and Design (Columbus Ohio). There I received my BFA in Painting with a strong focus in their conceptual studies. After graduating, I pursued my advance education at Northwestern University in Chicago, Il, where I received my MFA in 2001. I stayed in Chicago until 2005, where I was part of a young and thriving group of new and up and coming new artists, participating in many alternative showings and several traditional gallery shows. I have since traveled back and forth and lived in Los Angeles, Asheville and Knoxville. In all these travels, the one thing I continue to do is paint, draw and create. I tell a story.
