About

For as long as I remember, I have always been sketching something. You know that kid that always had to stay after school to wash desks after getting caught working on a masterpiece during fourth period. That was me.

By my late twenties, I was a digital graphic artist working with Silicon Valley technology companies and here is where my path got a little wonky. I took on some web design and development, found I had a gift for it, then programming, databases, and just fell into the IT hole. Eventually I would be an IT Director, then CEO. This made Dad proud and was good for the bank account, but I was desperately unhappy.

In 2001, with a little encouragment by my brother I started painting when the tech industry was in decline and I was able to really immerse myself in the medium. Over the next 20 years, painting would be the ultimate creative release, where I could immerse myself completely into the process.

Along the way, I would pickup photography but never really identified I might have a gift for it until 2011 when I lugged along a DSLR to Italy. The standard tourist photos I took were pretty bland, but when I looked at everything aound me with an artist's eye, my photography went to a new level. A return trip to Italy with better gear and the intent to capture art through the lens set me on a new path that I'm still excited to pursue today.

Today, I create abstract, abstract expressionist, and realism paintings in either acrylic or oils. My original pieces and prints will be available through my store, as well as an expanding set of photography prints offered currently.
