My primary form of art is hand thrown, functional pottery. I carve everything by hand and I never make the same piece twice – they are all unique in color and design. I am influenced by everything that surrounds me from nature to graffiti.

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics from Kent State University in 2008, and since graduation I have participated in two residency programs and worked as a studio technician at three studios.
