I am graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BA in Studio Arts. Since then I have built my art skills in many areas of creation. I have used these skills to continue refining my building and hands on skills as well. I started as a carpenter/scenic artist in theater. I built and painted custom sets for multiple theater companies in the Pittsburgh area. I enjoyed the work but I found it hard to make it work financially. I was then hired by a design and development company. At Davidson I created and built prototypes for newly designed products as well as new inventions. The job required skills in every type of building and a high level of creativity. All of the work was confidential so I really can�t say much more about it. I then found contract work building an architectural model. I enjoyed this work more than any other. Unfortunately it was cheaper for the owner to have the models built out of the country so there was no opportunity to continue the work after the contract was completed. While I was working all of these jobs I was also doing industrial design in my spare time for Bacharach inc. Much of the work was creating digital copies of product labels. This transitioned into product design when the company changed ownership. At this point I started to create a family of products through visual design. All of this is in my portfolio as well as my personal artwork so have a look. Read Less

Since I completed my bachelors’ degree I have continued to create my own personal collection of artwork. Much of my work is influenced by social interaction and human sexuality, subjects I find incredibly interesting. I spend as much time as I can reading, and researching both subjects. My goal is to incorporate all of the information I have learned into my work to create a collection that is educational and visually interesting. Read Less
