I work in the new medium of 3d printing to create sculptures with very traditional aesthetics (i.e. realism). On that base, I layer interaction and meaning through the use of custom software, microcomputers and sensors. I'm inspired by a wide variety of subjects including nature, ecology, economics, history, futurology, and our relationship to technology.
I was born in San Francisco, California, but raised in various suburbs of the the North Bay in Sonoma County. Drawing, computers and skateboarding were my constant companions growing up.
I went on to study art at San Francisco State University, earning a B.A. in Art (Studio Art concentration). Despite my intention to become the next Picasso, I became fascinated by so-called "New Media" art. After graduation, I followed the technology thread and studied Web design & development. Before I knew it, I was working in the industry (writing front-end code) and the rest is my LinkedIn work history.
I abandoned my art practice for many years, but then I discovered creative coding, 3d printing and other ways to make art objects with my palette of skills and life experiences. To learn more or to purchase my art, please contact me for more information. Thanks for visiting!
