He received his BFA in fine arts and animation from the University of Oregon as well as having spent a year abroad in Florence Italy, where he studied figurative painting at the Lorenzo di Medici Art Instiute.
He discovered his love for stained glass while visiting the Marc Chagall windows in Nice, France. His stained glass pieces are typically bright and alive with color that will pleasently illuminate any room or enviornment in which they are placed. He is an avid traveler, constantly observing and inspired by cultures other than his own which influence his artistic choices. “There’s something so final about glass as opposed to oil. I can confidently walk away from a piece knowing it’s finished."
