Goofy, discombobulated, unorthodox, I have no structured way to tell the tale of how I got to this point in life. Closest I can come is that I like to piddle (to spend time in a wasteful, trifling or ineffective way). What ever comes to mind that inspires me to create, is the direction I go. We have all heard of the “Absent minded professor.” Bingo, that’s me.

My whole life has been a whirlwind of creative endeavors. I can’t seem to focus on any one thing long enough to become a master of any discipline. With a gold hammer award in wood working,an excellence in art award and a background in mechanical engineering, I spend my days building,fixing and creating anything and everything that comes my way. That is why I have an extreme passion for ceramics. Ceramics allows me the opportunity to “piddle” with every thing from glaze development to firing schedules, kiln building to studio layout and design, social networking to inspiring new potters to follow their creative impulses. The pots I make are born from curiosity,creativity and the knowledge other ceramic artists have shared with me.

The best days in life are those spent in the company of good friends and family. Ceramics brings together folks from all walks of life eager to express their creative experiences through the ceramic arts. I am ecstatic to be a part of the ceramic arts community.
