Born in a small village known as Takima Oregon, I come from a family of artists and musicians. At a young age, I learned to live off creating art and travel like a nomad. By the age of 18 this lifestyle took me on solo journeys working for Renaissance Faires throughout the country. It was in the year 2000 that I found myself inspired by the flameworking glass while working at a smokeshop. I moved into an apartment and spent the majority of my free time behind the torch. For years I worked with the some of the best, such as Mike Luna and Darby Holm. I now live in Evergreen, Colorado, where I am part of the Everdream Studio.
