I was born in Dallas TX and went to film school at the University of Texas in Austin. After a demoralizing stint in the film business in Los Angeles I moved to San Francisco. Here I continued to make short films. I also started painting. Soon this became my main focus. From there I moved to New York for a few years, keeping studios in both San Francisco and Brooklyn. Now I live in San Francisco working out of a studio in the Bayview district of the city.
