I am a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, with a Masters of Fine Art degree in Sculpture. I also have a Bachelors of Fine Art degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in Printmaking.

As a jeweler, my aesthetic sway comes from mid-century modern design, craft, and architecture. I appreciate both the simplicity and the functionality of this design philosophy and thus, reflect on it when designing my own work. My individual approach to fabrication and design give the jewelry its unique quality, as do the visual influences I find in some of the natural sciences such as astronomy and botany.
