I was raised in a military family and moved every two years for most of my life. I come from a family of storytellers who love investigation and creativity. I was introduced and encouraged into creative outlets at an early age, I never forgot the lessons of craft from my mom (a basket maker and calligrapher) and the lessons of engineering and risk from my dad. My training in the Arts comes from an Undergraduate Degree at the University of Florida in Printmaking and a Masters Degree from the University of Georgia with the same emphasis. Between the two programs of formal education I lived in downtown Washington DC and trained as a custom woodworker under woodworker Dennis Sitka. Currently I am an Associate Professor of Art and Chair of the Art Department at Georgetown College in Georgetown Kentucky where I teach a variety of courses including Sculpture, Printmaking, 3D Design, Metal Casting and Package Design. Although I spent most of my life moving around the country I have found a personal connection to the landscape and waterways of central Kentucky. I live in Georgetown with my wife Holly, my daughter Olive, my son Thatcher, and our dogs Clover and Cricket.
