"Art maker and prime mover, mostly. I was born and raised in Reading, Pennsylvania, earned a BFA from Syracuse University, MFA from Brooklyn College, and have spent the last thirteen years in Brooklyn, New York, as a painter, muralist, designer, print maker, teacher, administrator, t-shirt peddler, beat blender, strap hanger, and high fiver. A few of my favorite things include dancing, music, buying CDs, social justice, urban renewal, NCAA brackets, wine, street art, second lines in New Orleans, and re-watching episodes of The Wire."
