I left my native Central Florida in the early '70's after the startling invasion of a giant, three-fingered, cartoon rodent named "Mickey". East Tennessee was the destination where I earned the much prized and always lucrative, Bachelor of Studio Arts degree. Was it Voltaire, or maybe Groucho Marx, that said. “The world has no boundaries when you have no marketable skills”…. During my college years, I bought a camera to shoot my 3-dimensional & 2D art-work. What started out as a tool for documenting my artwork, became the means to make art.

A few decades later, I’m still exploring the worlds of “no marketable employment skills” with the skills I’ve learned by never being directly employed.

I live in East Tennessee in a cool, funky house on a large lake with my beautiful wife, Kathy.
