My father introduced me to clay at an early age. As art teacher, painter, potter and carpenter he taught me work with my hands.

I studied ceramics in college before pursuing a degree photojournalism. That led me to a 14-year- journalism career in the Virgin Islands and Florida.

I returned to clay in 2005 while working as a photojournalist. Since then I've dedicated all my efforts toward teaching and creating with clay.

My work ranges from functional to sculptural and is fired in a range of atmospheres.

I'm currently Head of Ceramics at First City Art Center and an Adjunct Professor of Ceramics at Pensacola State College.
