About Me. I am a self-taught contemporary abstract painter and live in the Atlanta area. I was raised in a military family, spending my childhood overseas and all over the Eastern United States. These dynamic early experiences instilled a life-long interest in diverse people and places, art and culture, as well as for strong bonds to family and friends. I've held a wild assortment of careers including jewelry sales, stand-up comedy and pet sitting. Aside from creating my art, I like to spend time cooking for friends, wine tasting, watching my home teams (Braves and Falcons) play, and throwing a Frisbee for my dog.
