I am currently the Director of the FAA sculpture program which I began in 1998, I currently reside and work in Florence, Italy. I undertook one year of study at the FAA in 1996 and completed my BFA and MFA at Boston University in 1995 and 1998.

“Nature is a great instructor and working from direct observations allows me to unlock some of her mysteries. The forms that I am able to bring to the surface should clarify my interpretation of human relationships. To copy nature is an impossibility, but to seek an understanding of particular human emotion, to attempt to clarify emotional content through silent sculptural form is. I feel it is necessary to study from life, drawing on the inspiration I receive from the subject in an attempt to make poetry of the form. Ultimately, presenting the viewer with the most essential forms expanding our knowledge and ideas of how we interrelate to one another.”
