I was raised in the Highlands neighborhood of Louisville, KY and graduated from DuPont Manual Magnet High School in 1999. Since 1998, I have been designing, fabricating and smithing metalwork. I moved to Knoxville, TN in 2002 and graduated with a BFA in Sculpture from the University of Tennessee in 2005.
Some of my paintings and public art are present around the city of Knoxville, including a gate at the entrance to James Agee Park, and ironwork downtown on the Market Sqaure. There are also paintings, chandeliers, signs and other metalwork in commercial and residential spaces around Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia, as well as a mural in Sri Lanka.
I feel lucky to get to do what I love.
