Asheville, NC, USA


Been in glass 30 odd years. Competent at it for 25. I have been both an artist/entrepreneur and Academician. Earned my B.A. in Glass and Metal Arts from San Francisco State University, was lucky enough to be a part of the Pilchuck/Seattle glass community for ten years and then went on to receive my M.F.A. at The Ohio State University. I then was hired on as Assistant Professor at Salisbury University where I ran the Glass Department/Program for seven years. Currently I reside in Asheville, NC where life is fine and the North Carolina Glass Center, also in Asheville, NC is where I work and teach.
