I was born in 1983 in ever-shrinking rural Pennsylvania in a small town called Worcester, about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia.
I have always been drawing, creating, taking things apart and putting them back together (although not necessarily the way they were before.) As a kid, when my mom wouldn’t let me have toy guns I was left to my wits to fashion them out of legos. This inherent creativity lasted through high school and eventually led me to the Savannah College of Art and Design. I began my college career as an animation major then realized that I wanted to create by getting my hands dirty and switched to the metals and jewelry department where I graduated in 2005 with a BFA.
Since I graduated from SCAD my work has evolved from jewelry to 3-D box format sculpture (often compared to Joseph Cornell). In the last year or so I've evolved from 3-D to 2-D. I'm just up to my ankles in the world of painting, illustration and screen printing, but I'm more comfortable now in what I'm doing than I have been in years.
