I was born in 1959 in Wichita, Kansas. I lived in Missouri, New Jersey, and North Carolina growing up. I always enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together (my mother tells me that I took my pacifiers apart). I did some drawing and painting as a boy, but was more interested in building go-carts and tree-forts. As a young adult, I was drawn to art, but I did not anticipate that I would make a career as a sculptor.

In 1983, I took a painting class at a community art center in Connecticut and REALLY liked it. I then took a metal sculpture class and really liked it too. In the summer of 1984 I saw an ad in a local weekly paper requesting design submissions for a public art project for the train station in Stamford, Connecticut. I had looked at public sculptures many times and thought “I could do better than that”, so I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth was. I spent the next week designing and creating a couple of models. I became totally absorbed in the project and at the end of the week (though I was not awarded the commission) it was clear that creating artwork was deeply satisfying to me and I needed to make it an ongoing part of my life. In the past 25 years I have produced a wide range of sculptures.
