I started working with glass a few years ago and quickly
grew out of my garage studio. In March of 2001 I purchased
a building and have set up a 3000 square foot studio
in San Pedro, Ca. I share it with two other artists.
I have worked as a survey archaeologist and lived with
hunters and gathers in South America.
I was an industrial engineer for an aerospace company.
I have taught anthropology and archaeology at the community
college and university levels, as well as, general education
at elementary and middle schools ranging from the inner
city to migrant farm communities to suburbia.

John Williams taught me how to apply the Laws of Physics
to glass. Roger Thomas ) showed that physical laws and
beauty are not incompatible. Amerinda taught me about
attention to details. And Einar and Jamex de la Torre
(the original 'anti-purists') showed me how physics,
beauty, and detail can be combined to create meaning.
