From sculpture to photography, I have explored metaphor and story through a range of different mediums. After earning my BFA in sculpture from Portland State University, I worked as a professional photographer for a decade. I am currently in process of obtaining a two year associates at Portland Community College in video production where I am enhancing my skills in video editing, shooting, and art department. There are few physical manifestations which reveal insight into who we are and how we connect to the world around us; Art has always been this for me. I believe art should be, as Bill Jay has said about photography, an emotional response to charged living. I enjoy working both in studio and out, executing plans for a vision or creating freely.
