From the window of my truck, in the swampland by the highway, they grow. I had to pull over for a study and a think. I had to see if I could pay homage in some way, the only way I know how...in steel.
New Orleans is my home. I wasn't born here, but she doesn't mind.
I was raised in Colorado by parents who instilled an honest work ethic and compassion for others...offset by a big brother who made sure I knew how to punch, make a proper fire, and apologize when I broke stuff. Somewhere along the line, I discovered my hands could make things, and I've been doing all I can to earn a living that way ever since.
I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder and immediately ran off to join the circus that is film making. I learned how to weld and basic woodworking from true craftspeople there. My need to combine whimsy with decay was forged on film sets and gradually brought me to New Orleans.
Over the last 15 years, I have built custom sculpture and 2D work for many feature films and television programs. My work also includes gallery show contributions, large scale welded architectural pieces, personal memorial sculptures, and custom works for clients of interior decorators in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Dallas, and New Orleans.
I share a studio in Uptown and spend as much time as I can up to my elbows in art.
