Born in 1971 in Cleveland, OH. Earned BFA in Metals and Jewelry and BS in
Art Education from Miami University, Oxford, OH. Earned MFA in
Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM from Tyler School of Art. Currently employed as a
professor of Metals and Jewelry and Electronic Design at the Savannah College
of Art and Design. Responsibilities include teaching metals and jewelry
studio courses, and integrating technology into object oriented curriculums.
A passion for teaching and the endless challenges of a traditional metals
studio led me to pursue a masters' degree in the metalsmithing field. During
my time in graduate school I was able to embody new methods of creating
objects. Since graduating I have been able to continue to work with similar
tools. My most recent objects further explore the use of computer aided
technologies to realize objects. Wile designing and making I work within
different methodologies. My goal in these explorations is to find
applications of CAD CAM technologies that communicate ideas effectively.
