I grew up on a farm in Marine on St Croix Minnesota. I have lived in Minnesota, South Dakota, Idaho and Montana. Before coming to the Boulder area we lived in Englewood Colorado. I have twins, a boy and a girl. Our family likes to hike and bike. Currently I am teaching Middle School Art and High School Art classes. After classes I coach 8th grade to 12th grade mountain biking club. My main focus in the fine arts is pottery. I teach drawing, painting, printmaking and ceramics.
