The official stuff: I have a MAT in Visual Education as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design, both from Kent State University.
The really important stuff: I am mostly a self-taught artist. I have taken a few workshops now and then, but most of my learning has been from trial and error, and sheer determination to figure things out. Painting, photography and printmaking are my main focus, but lately I have been experimenting with new ways to make marks and to create art from everyday objects.
I also enjoy playing the classical guitar and I have three beautiful daughters and an amazing wife that, despite my sometimes difficult artistic tendencies, supports my endless pursuit of creating new things.
