I have been in the arts my whole life. My parents were artists and opened the first contemporary art gallery in Santa Fe, NM. My early memories were of my parents in their studios and of Hill’s Gallery. The mysterious objects that pervaded the gallery intrigued me. Looking at those artworks felt like observing some secret alchemical language that I wanted to learn.
I studied International Affairs and German Studies at Lewis & Clark trying to “do something practical” as my parents wished. Afterward I built earthen and straw bale homes before cofounding Zen Stone Lighting, a lighting design company, with my wife, a former paper artist from Brazil.
After an intense medical crisis, I dedicated myself to pursuing art full time. I earned an MFA in Photographic Arts at Brooks Institute and have been working full time as an artist since 2010 still seeking to decipher that alchemical language.
