My background is theatre design - scenery, lighting, sound, props - so my visual art tends to be theatrical.  I learned how to draw, build and paint creating for the stage (over 17 years of theatre production so far) and in the last several years started pursuing my visual art side as well. I'm equally influenced by comics, cartoons and anime as I am technical manuals, infrastructure/engineering specs and scientific documentation. My art drifts between the spirit world and the scene shop.

Now that we finally have dedicated studio space in Hyattsville, MD, I have room to create for both gallery and stage without the constraints of noise, power or building hours.  I'm always open for commissions and happy to collaborate on new projects on and off the stage!

Congratulations on the studio space, and thanks so much for posting your bio. I seem to find several great people with a connection between the stage and visual arts!

Yes,interesting bio. Great work on your site as well. I wonder if you are familiar with a friend of mine, Jared Davis, who has a similar background. He's a real all-around artist/theater man and MC: http://artbyjared.com/home.html

His picture looks very familiar, and the performing arts community in DC is quite small. I'm sure we've crossed paths before, but I can't honestly say I know him.
I'm always open for collaboration though! :D
