I am an artist, educator, and community organizer living and working in San Antonio, Texas. I am originally from a small town in the northwest corner of Iowa and the plains of home taught me to love minimalism. I moved to Holland, Michigan to complete his undergraduate work at Hope College. While in Michigan, I was influenced by the heritage of mid-century design and discovered a passion for hardware stores. I also lived and worked briefly in New York through the N.Y.C.A.M.S. program, where I interned with Phoebe Washburn and she influenced my early studio practice. After Michigan, I moved to Texas to pursue my MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where my thesis focused on the critique of the social construction of masculinity. Now I teach as a full-time lecturer at Texas A&M San Antonio where I facilitate courses in Art Appreciation, Latinx Art Appreciation, Visual Studies, and Photography. I exhibit my artwork extensively in Texas and nationally. Recently, I have had to opportunity to pursue artist residencies at the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin and Casa LÜ in Mexico City.
