As a glass artist, I explore what occurs naturally with the material, harnessing heat and flow to encourage the glass to speak for itself while conveying my vision. Currently, I am torn between two passions, one of Pattern and Chaos, the other an exploration of the Formation of Planet Earth. My endeavors are supported by Pittsburgh Glass Center, home for the past 10 years, where I currently serve as the kilnforming and hospitality coordinator.
