In 1996, he began working with the brilliant artisans of General Bead - San Francisco's premier bead palace. It was there that he learned the intricacies of fine bead work from some of the world's leading beaded jewelry artists, including Beverly Mayfield-Sunshine, his greatest inspiration.

His unique brand of wildly provocative performance art has been seen in many of SF’s cabarets and he has received critical and mass acclaim for his onstage work with companies and venues such as Lincoln Center, Intersection For The Arts, FoulPlay, HurLyBurLy, and The Thrillpeddlers, where he figured prominently in the long-running phenomenon Pearls Over Shanghai.
