I was born in Sharon, Connecticut in 1977. I grew up in Southbury, Connecticut - a town which once maintained an authentic sense of New England ambience, but now has been largely transformed into a tame, contemporary exurbia. It certainly has been an influence on my work. I went to Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. Studied art, economics and international affairs, graduating in 1999. Moved to San Francisco in 2003 to attend the California College of the Arts, graduating in 2005. Had first solo show at Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco in December 2006. I plan to continue to living and working in the West, as it feels right and is a beautiful and diverse region.
