I have been described as a Modern Renaissance Man because of my wide range of interests and talents. I’m eager to learn new traits, and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty. The arts are my passion, and since a young age, I have been building and creating in a myriad of mediums. Whether I’m working at a desk, in a shop or outdoors, I’m comfortable using the tools necessary to get the job done. I hold degrees in Small Business Management and Computer Animation, and for the past 14 years, I have owned and run a multimedia company. I’m confident I can do any job I apply myself to—and do it well.

Boise— The 8th Street Marketplace Artist in Residence (AiR) program selects emerging and established artists for six-month residencies in donated commercial office spaces in downtown Boise, ID. AiR is housed in the 8th Street Marketplace at BoDo.
In August a selection panel of community business and arts leaders selected new artists for the September-March 2013 residency. The new fellows are:
Northrup Building, 8th and Broad, West Side of 8th Street
The City of Boise’s Department of Arts and History, in partnership with property owners Ephraim Greenwall, G. Square Companies, and the Boise Weekly, administers and co-sponsors the program. The selections are made based on the strength of the artist’s work samples and letters of interest. The panelists chose artists who would engage the spaces and audiences differently.
Artists will share their work with the public during First Thursday studio tours. October 4th will be the first First Thursday for the new batch of fellows. The public is invited to view their works from 5-8pm in their studio spaces.

a city built with Imagination.
As a kid I always felt that imagination was in what I was working with. As an adult, I realize that the imagination is actually inside of me. As a self-taught sculptor since the age of 10, I have always struggled with why I was given this talent and now I understand it is to give the world a chance to see things through my eyes. Claytown represents my life as it is and my life as I want it to be. Everything I have ever seen or wanted to see is here. For me, it’s a perfect world into which I can always escape when I want to just relax and create.
Text about Modern Renditions
During the past few years, I’ve had several gallery showings in and around the city of Boise, Idaho of my multimedia art installation “Home on the Strange.”
It began with an exhibit in January 2011 at Studio J and has continued through 2012. I’ve shown at Idaho Poster and Letterpress, ALPHA’s Forever Red, Ella’s Room, Modern Hotel’s Modern Art, Kirkham Hot Springs, 2nd and Jefferson and The Art Zone at Eagle Performing Arts Center. “Home on the Strange” allowed me to work with makeup artists, friends, and models and with their help, I was able to create great installations.
