I was born in Eugene, Oregon, November 17, 1969, and raised by the 2 incredible people I am lucky enough to call my parents. A high premium was placed on education and creativity when I was growing up. I have always drawn, painted, sculpted - tried to make some sort of tangible record of my experiences and impressions of the world around me. I received training in drawing and painting at the University of Oregon, under Professor Ron Graff and the late Professor Frank Okada, both renowned artists and educators. In the early 1990's, I transitioned to sculptural works as my main artistic output, focusing on direct welded steel work and found object assemblages.

Currently, I live and work in Eugene, with my beautiful wife, Melissa, 5 cats and 1 pig (who goes to the studio with me every day). I spend as much time as possible welding, working, and laughing.


There are few areas in one's life where true freedom is available; Art is where I am able to find true freedom.
