Honestly, I’m not spending a ton of time making artwork these days, but I have a strong enough creative force within me to give it space on this website. Just in case I ever do have something to share, this is the space where I will do it. For now, here’s the backstory.
I first started throwing in high school, then I studied Ceramics and Graphic Design at Rowan University from 2002-2007. I apprenticed with Pete Callas for a brief period while I was still in New Jersey. I was an active member for a few years at Cindercone Clay Center in Bend, though I am not currently making pottery. I will probably start up again someday. It has been a trend of a few years on few years off. I love working with clay, but right now my time is focused on other creative endeavors with far less commitment.
I love book-binding. I’m working on a few projects to combine writing with blind-contour drawings and making books by hand. I’m excited to see how they will turn out. I share this mostly so that you know I can do
BOOK REPAIRS! If you have a book that is precious that needs some care, let me know. If you have a guidebook that has taken a beating and is annoying to have to piece together at the crag, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can fix it up better than new! See the final product of the book pictured above in a quick clip here.
