I was born in Canada and raised in Papua New Guinea where I was home-schooled in the Sepik region and later attended boarding school in the Highlands. My family moved back to the States where I attended high school and college. I returned to PNG for a time, lived in Peru for 6 months and traveled Europe for a couple of summers in graduate school. Residencies take me to different landscapes of the U.S. I currently live in Omaha, NE and teach design at Creighton University.
