I am a sculptor living and working in Columbus, Ohio.  My primary media is clay, but I also incorporate found and ready-made materials such as metal, wood and glass.  I use the human form as a means of addressing a range of themes, including sexuality, spirituality and personal identity.

I graduated from The Ohio State University and received my MFA in ceramics from Kent State University.  My work has shown regionally and nationally in both group and solo exhibitions.  I currently serve as a board member for the Ohio Designer Craftsman and previously served as a board member for the Ohio Museums Association.  I am also a member of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) and the College Arts Association.

I am an art professor at Otterbein University in Westerville, OH, teaching ceramics, sculpture and 3D design.
