About Me...

I was born in 1964 and raised in Dade City, Florida. Aspiring to see the world, I joined the United States Air Force in 1984. I was stationed in California and completed my five-year enlistment in Turkey.

I returned to Central Florida and completed an Associate of Arts degree from Pasco Hernando Community College. I moved to Miami, Florida in 1992 and studied Fine Arts at Florida International University. I worked at the FIU Art Museum, was a member of the University of Miami glass blowing guild, and studied during the summer months at Penland School of Crafts. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in glass from FIU in 1996.

After graduation, I moved to Ahus, Sweden and worked at Studio Glashyttan for a year. I came to Northeast Ohio in 1997 to study glass at Kent State University. I specialized in blowing early American glass while working at Hale Farm and Village. In April 2006, I co-founded and opened Akron Glass Works. And then in 2010, I opened Canton Glass Works after moving to the Canton area. I love the city's support of the fine arts, and I am very excited to be a part of this growing community.
