I was born in Chicago and raised in Cabin John, Maryland. My father was an architect and taught me practical design, wood working and construction techniques from a young age. In 2010 I worked as a display artist and in 2011 took sculpture classes through Corcoran and Montgomery College before enrolling in their studio fine art program in 2014.
