I was born in England, grew up in California and spent most of my adult life in San Francisco. In the 1990s I earned an MFA from University of Michigan in Printmaking, worked as a college art teacher, and then a computer game artist. In the early part of this decade I grew restless and moved around the east coast trying out cities the way some people try on new shoes. I discovered that there are simpler ways to change one’s scenery than move someplace new, and moved once again back to SF where I live. I now try to get out of the city whenever I can to travel and explore.
