I moved to New York City from Dallas, TX to earn a Master's in fine art. I stayed in the city after school and co-founded an alternative space with a friend. We made art and exhibited it in our space and friend’s spaces all over the city. I also worked for one of my favorite sculptors to make ends meet.

​Since then, I moved north to the Hudson Valley with my wife and twin boys and worked my way up to the position of Associate Director of Web Development and Strategy in the Office of Communications at Vassar College. I divide my time between parenting, design, art, music, bicycling, skiing, hiking, and camping.
