I've been an artist for the last 20 some years; prior to this indulgence of the soul I held positions as a Senior Financial Analyst, Corporate VP and President of a virtual reality research organization. Although I've learned, traveled and experienced great things in these prior positions - art will forever be my passion.
My formal education includes a B.A. degree in Philosophy, B.S degrees in Finance and CIS, an MBA and a Masters of Fine Arts all at Arizona State University. In these pursuits I have been honored with membership in The Arizona Academy, Beta Gamma Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi. I've also had the honor and pleasure of working on grants from the Research Institute for Studies in the Arts, and commissions from Yamanshi University in Japan and the W.P. Carey School of Business.
My greatest achievement remains convincing my wife Deborah to marry me. Her love is my greatest honor.
