I have been an artist, creating ceramic, (and more recently) steel sculpture, and pottery for the past twenty-eight years. My love of all things clay began during my second year as an art student at California State University, Sacramento where I eventually earned a BA and MA in Ceramics. Prior to that, I studied film making and worked as a graphic designer for several local California firms. After several years of teaching High School art in Sacramento, I returned to school earning my Masters of Fine Arts at the Rhode Island School of Design. The MFA led to a variety of teaching positions, the most recent at Bridgewater College in Virginia, where I began in 1997.
I am married with two children, Alden and Lydia. My wife Tracy is a professor at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg. My large sculpture and ceramics studio is in New Hope Virginia, next to my home and garden.
