I have been making glass beads since 1994. I was a potter for over 20 years and had worked in the music industry for several years before taking up lampworking. Much of my work is sold to jewelry designers and collectors across the United States. I currently teach glass bead making and fusing classes at the UCSD Crafts Center in La Jolla, CA and continue to work as a musician playing the cello, singing, writing, recording and touring in various projects.
