I live and work from my home in Seattle Washington. I first started blowing glass right out of High School, asking for a class from my parents for my 19th birthday. It was all over from there. I had planned to go to medical school before I discovered glass but my fascination with glass drove me to drop that ambition and instead follow my heart and my passion, dedicating my life to glass. My glass education comes from years of experience in both factory and studio settings as well as work in industrial glass manufacture. I have trained with and worked alongside the world's most renowned glass artists and master glassblowers in the Seattle area and also abroad. To date, I have blown glass in 11 different countries and territories. I have been a resident artist in several US states as well as Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China and have shown in the US, Mexico, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China.
