"Born in Ohio, I have spent the past 40 years in San Francisco working as a professional musician, sign painter, and muralist. My mural career includes over 15 interior and 12 exterior murals painted over a span of 14 years. Included in my resume is the Rosa Parks mural, awarded the best mural of 1997. My work-in-progress is the Tribute to jazz: mural at What a Grind cafe at Fillmore and Eddy. St. in San Francisco. I am currently the artist in residence at Hunter's Point Shipyard, artist in residence at the Bayview Opera House, an art teacher with the Carver Mural Program in San Francisco and continuing my vocation as a sign painter."
