Not really having a good focus on what I wanted to do with my life, I did all the afore-mentioned for my first 4 years of college at the University of Missouri at Columbia, and at Boston University, then when I relocated to Rochester NY, I entered the Rochester Institute of Technology and completed another 3 years with a BFA in Industrial Design. I followed this some years later, with graduate work and certification in Interactive Multimedia Development.

Never one to be pinned down for very long (I blame my air force brat upbringing for giving me "itchy feet"), over the years I pursued a variety of creative careers, including architectural design, painting and illustration, art direction, mixed media art, interaction design, and my current passions: ceramic art and jewelry design.
