Degrees and Certifications:
As an artist my work is mostly outdoor sculpture that blurs the line between sculpture, ecology, and robotics. I was born in Gainesville, FL and received my Bachelors Degree in Sculpture from the University of Florida in 2003 and my Masters Degree in Art and Technology from The Ohio State University in 2006. For the past ten years I have taught various art courses at the Ohio State University, the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, and the University of Iowa. My course subjects range from sculpture to art fundamentals, performance art, and robotics. In 2010 I completed Heliotropis, a solar powered robotic sculpture that gained international attention and began my reputation as a notable innovator in the world of sculpture and solar art. The Kinetic Bonfire is my most recent commission and is a bicycle powered sculpture with interactive lighting that responds like animated flames as the participants peddle. I look forward to working with your children to expand their artistic abilities and to open up a world of possibilities for their creative potential!
