The stained glass windows I create incorporate distinctive decorative wire and solder work, wheel engravings, salvaged antiques and unusual glass and jewels. The modern glass in my pieces is typically hand-blown or hand-rolled.

I am a native of southern California, but love rock climbing and traveling. Visit me live at the Dicken's Christmas Fair in San Francisco weekends in December.
