A graduate of the Yale School of Art, I have exhibited my work throughout the United States, with solo exhibitions in New York City, Chicago, Houston and Milford, Pennsylvania. Among the grants and awards I’ve received are an Elizabeth Foundation Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts grant and an Ingram Merrill Foundation Grant, scholarships to Yale, the Skowhegan School and the New York Studio School. I've taught at Lehman College (Bronx, NY), Oxbow Summer Program (Michigan), Yale University’s Summer Program (New Haven, CT) and at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and have been a visiting artist at the Art Insitute of Chicago, Cooper Union and Hampton University. I live and work in New York City.
