I grew up in Columbia, MD where I learned to create pots on the wheel at the age of thirteen. Although this was not my first experience with clay, its effect was profound. I continued to make pots in a school environment until he graduated in 1997 with a BFA from Guilford College. After graduating, I moved to Atlanta, GA and started making pots full time. I returned to Greensboro NC in the spring of 1999 and began teaching at Guilford College half time. Since then I have continued to teach, sell, exhibit and publish work.
