I was born in the USA; grew up in Michigan and California; studied painting, performance and film at the University of California, San Diego (B.A. Visual Arts; and completed all graduate coursework for M.A. Film at San Francisco State University. As a young boy, I remember making my first drawing of a bird in flight, burning and covered in orange and red flames. Symbolic of my early childhood I suppose. Later I made more drawings and paintings, mostly representational, of the things and people around me, then, eventually moved completely towards my/ the subconscious for images-ideas of expressive abstraction. Before moving to Brasil five years ago, I exhibited my paintings, drawings, and films in galleries and festivals in California, Washington, Michigan and New York. In Florianopolis, where I now live, I teach workshops on painting and drawing using intuitive techniques, and have had several exhibitions of my paintings and drawings (individual and group in Florianopolis and Rio do Sul).
