As a child I always knew I wanted to be a sculptor. I experimented with a variety of mediums, but focused mainly on clay and often made dragons. In 2000 I was exposed to Lamp Working and knew it was the next step in my life journey. I struggled to pay the bills fr the first 10 years, all the while with this nagging fear that I may have to get a "real" job. Now the glass pipes industry is booming and I am grateful to be a part of this movement. I am inspired by the natural world as well as movies, video games, and mythology of all origins.
