"an artist is a person first. He is an individual. If there is no person, there is no artist.” – Chalm Potok

I love to express. I love to create. I love experiences. But more than that, I love to learn and discover, especially in the context of relationships. That is my passion. My life is about taking risks, because I don't want to say "I wish I had done that..." My road has taken me from drawing ninja turtles, playing in a rock band, competing in organized sports, studying Sociology and Theology, working in Investment Sales, teaching overseas, and now, for over 6 years, designing in NYC for a large and diverse clientele.

I count each day as a blessing (well, most days, and usually after a few cups of coffee ;) and am genuinely grateful for each day. I believe that it is the culmination of our experiences that both form us and supply infinite opportunities to overcome obstacles. It has given me an intense curiosity and a growing acceptance of change. This is what continues to drive me as a designer and as a person. and I genuinely look forward to touching base :)
