Bio

     A lifelong sports fan, I am obsessed with hockey.  I actively participate in an adult recreational ice hockey league, and enjoy watching the Boston Bruins.  My artwork is a reflection of this passion for the sport.  In particular, I am fascinated with the aesthetics of jerseys, logos, and equipment.  I work in a wide variety of materials including predominately oil paints, watercolor, graphite, and pen.  In recent years, I've begun incorporating printmaking and sculpture into my repertoire.

     

     I was born in 1982 in Nevada, MO.  For most of my live, I have lived in the southwestern Missouri and northeastern Oklahoma areas.  I consider Wyandotte, OK to be my hometown, having graduated from high school there in 2001.  I received my BA from Oklahoma State University in 2007.  Soon afterwards I began teaching middle school in Tulsa, and then high school art in Okemah, OK.  I took a hiatus from teaching in 2013 to attend graduate school at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi in Corpus Christi, TX.  I received an MA in Studio Art from the university in December 2014.  I currently teach art at Lakeville North High school, and reside in Eagan, MN along with my wife Casey, and son Elliott.
