I feel as if I am a explorer. With each piece I make I prepare for a journey,
I have a general idea where I want to go, but I never know where the path
will lead me. Each piece I work on I set out in the hopes of discovering
something new and exciting. As any explorer my journeys are filed with
ups and downs, disappointments and breakthroughs, however with each piece
I am sure to gain knowledge and insight which is the excitement that brings
me to my studio every day.

time he studied glassblowing with David Levi and Dimitri Mechealidis in
