what else can I tell you?

I've been written about here and there,

I've been featured in the SF chronicle,

I was apparently in french vogue once...

I was showing at three different places in SF before the pandemic hit.  I was showing art all the time all over town.

I even got to create an art installation room at the Midway in SF for NYE when little dragon was performing.  I hit the open bar pretty hard so I forgot to take photos. but I got a photo of the outfit.

and I had the cutest apartment ever (according to me)

Before I was making this kind of art, I was a fashion photographer for small brands, and I was an artist's assistant to some fine people in 1890 Bryant street named John Warren Travis and Jonah Burlingame.

 

I'm known for being a rather iconic dresser.

The kind of person who wears things, not the kind who stores clothes.  (But I do have a large wardrobe.)

I was also in some bands for a couple of years and somehow made an album of my own recently, and it's a damn good album.

I got a bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Idaho, where I focused on painting and collage, while working as an assistant to Beth Cavener (the sculptor featured in hi fructose) - I engineered the leather surrounding these forms of organs seen in her series that sold out at Miami Art week back in 2009.

I also worked at the local gallery as a docent.

And, I worked at a&w root beer while going through a divorce.  Nice.

Graduated at the top of my class and 99% of my professors hated me because I was a smart ass.

 

I was voted most artistic in my senior year of high school.

In 6th grade they teased me for drawing too many cartoons, but I still beat them all on the fitness tests and got really good grades, so...

as a kid I was passionate about time travel and animals.

My first memories are of the desert southwest.

Before that, idk You're going to have to consult the akashic records or whatever, cause man, I don't even remember that far back.

I do know I had a dinosaur cake on my 2nd birthday though.

Have a nice day!
