BFA in Graphic Design from NAU.
I’m an artist with work experience in metal fabrication, process and manufacturing engineering, civil engineering and risk management.
In my youth I was a garbage picker. I would drag things home, tear them apart, sometimes just to see how they work, sometimes to put them back together in a different form.
In high school my parents were scratching their heads wondering why anyone would build a wall out of empty beer cans or make a couch out of a clawfoot bathtub, but they went with it.
In college I majored in graphic design. I took a 3D design class and was hooked. Working with my hands and seeing creations formed from raw materials, that I could never accomplish in the 2D world, was where I found direction for my artistic endeavors.
