The seeds for jewelry design began at an early age and took form in college. When I was five I began making plastic models. I focused on science fiction related themes and subjects of World War Two. With continued years of interest, I developed unique skills for making miniature objects. In college at The University of Iowa I became interested in studio art gravitating to metalsmithing and jewelry design. By the time I graduated in 1989 the years of making models and the education in metalworking provided opportunities for professional success.
I live in Kutztown Pennsylvania with my wife Amy and daughter Annabel. My wife is a professor in art education at Kutztown University. I work from home as a solo artist and travel the country exhibiting my work. As a family we enjoy cooking and entertaining. To keep in shape I train regularly in Shorin-rue Karate. When time provides I take pleasure in making studio furniture and keeping track of my beloved Iowa Hawkeye football team.
