Studio and residence in Chico , California .  Working in the glass medium since 1970.  Attended CSU CHICO from 1973 to 1977.  Studied under world renowned German designer Ludwig Schafrath and New York designer Richard Millard. 

Currently working in metal, hot and flat glass as well as actual glass fabrication. The studio works with glass painting, casting, and bending.  Extensive use of vintage beveling equipment combined with the sophisticated contemporary glass polishing machines enable the artist to make custom bevels and polish his own fabricated glass.

Creating furniture and large scale metal sculpture for in and outdoor use.  Commissions and sculptures reflect the artist's respect for the optical virtue in his medium.  He uses the glass and metal in a lyrical dialogue between the organic and geometric extremes.  His approach and techniques come together in his own effervescent manner.
