Bio | Résumé
I have memories of staying home sick as a child. My Mom would fix my favorite things-- cooked hamburger meat with salt and green jello. To keep me occupied, she'd buy me crafts that I could do in bed. I remember, in particular, a piece of board that had small nails on it and I connected the nails with thread to create a pattern.
I always enjoyed buying craft kits myself, too. There was a phase when I was into making these monster models. Instead of cars or planes, they were monsters and they glowed in the dark. This was a very short phase in my craft career.

After graduating from the Art Institute in Chicago, I decided to learn a trade that could earn me some money. I went to baking school and have been baking, or elsewhere in the food industry, ever since. I recently left a job at Fowler's Gourmet in Durham, North Carolina, for a residency at the Kohler Arts and Industry Program. I am doing work inspired by my grandmothers' kitchens as well as by my professional baking experience. I have three months of artwork without the interuptions of other work. I am very excited.
