After 9 years of U.S. Naval service, I pursued a BFA in Studio Art and BA in Secondary Education at the College of Charleston.  A year from graduation, my naivete and self doubt took refuge in an IT job.

25 years later, a Parisian pickpocket and new technology reignited my passion for making Art.  I immersed myself in the study and practice of photography with the perspective of a painter.  It is a study that never ends. Or as Pianist Marcus Roberts so elegantly said "It's all about the search."

In 2010, I discovered the Cary Ballet Conservatory. Their generosity allowed me to learn about Dance as Art.  It is theater, motion, grace, energy and incredible athleticism and I am completely smitten by it.  Dance has provided the soul for my Portraiture.
