I started doing art because I’m hyper competitive. It took some time to later realize that art could be visual poetry that helped us reflect on the most important things in life. I earned my BFA and MFA in Painting and Drawing from Brigham Young University and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. I teach Graphic Design and Photography at Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH. I mostly prefer to make waffles with just the right crust and too much maple syrup.
I am married to an amazing woman and have 4 wildly well-behaved children. We love working, building and dancing together.
