About

I've always been a creative mind stuck inside an engineer's head. I went to school at the University of Illinois for Computer Engineering and although I tried my hardest to take some elective art classes, they seemed determined to keep me in the geeky classes. After graduating, I've had a series of decent but not exactly creative-minded jobs and now here I am.

These canvases were born out of an idea I had to fill a very large empty space in our dining room. We wanted to fill the area with something "city" and "Chicago" but were not thrilled with the idea of buying mass produced artwork at big box stores. Our new neighborhood provided plenty of landmarks so I took pictures and edited them together to form a collection of digital collages. I expanded into the downtown landmarks and now I'm nearing 100 spots of Chicago with more still on my to do list...
