I have been living in Southwest Michigan since 2003 with my wife and two daughters. Originally from Detroit, I spent a number of years in the Ann Arbor area earning a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Michigan. From there I moved to Chicago, where my wife and I owned and operated a small antique restoration and decorative painting company. I have been participating in exhibitions with my sculpture throughout the Midwest, including the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum, Toledo Art Institute, Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Muskegon Art Museum, Midwest Museum of American Art, and the Box Factory for the Arts, among others. Recently I was in a group show at the Box Factory for the Arts, entitled "Local ArtPrize Artists", and had a solo exhibition at Harrington Gallery on the campus of Andrews University. I have also participated in outdoor sculpture exhibitions at the South Bend Regional Airport, Applewood in Flint, ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, the Box Factory, and the Krasl biennial in Saint Joseph, among others. In 2015 I completed a sculptural bench for the Michigan Legacy Art Park at Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville, Michigan. In 2016 I won 3rd Prize at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts West Michigan Area Show for "Corpulent Distortion", and in 2019 an Honorable Mention at LowellArts Annual West Michigan Art Competition for "Choose Your Medicine".
