Experience

After graduating from SJSU I decided to take a hiatus from my painting in order to acquire fresh inspiration beyond the classroom. Prague became my home for a year as I taught and traveled extensively throughout Europe. After numerous stolen cameras and many motley adventures I realized it was time for me to return to my studio. Yearning for a taste of Europe, I naturally chose to settle in New Orleans in 2008. It is here that I plow away at my paintings and photography.
