My education and professional career began as a draftsman and facilities planner for engineers and architects. I gradually segued from precision and perspective to syncopation and composition performing and recording music, and simultaneously working as an artist in the retail and photo industry. Imagination was the impetus to the arts, and my altruistic nature and desire to learn directed me to academia. As an educator, my intention is to guide individuals with new systems of thought on the facets of interdisciplinary thinking and the creative expression of sensory patterns, design elements and intention.
I am inspired to create environments conducive for discovering possibilities, developing innovative concepts + communicating one's vision. My influences are the calligraphic spirit of landscapes and taijiquan, syncopated musical and visual rhythms and the sensibility of Haiku poems and Shakespeare sonnets.
