     The Arts have played a major role in my life since I was quite young. I was born in Dayton Oh, and was very fortunate to grow up in a household where exposure to the Arts was as important as academic study.  I was part of an Arts club in middle school but concentrated more on sports in High School.  My venture into Fine Art began due to a chance meeting with an Art Professor at my alma mater, Tennessee State University. After a brief conversation, he encouraged me to take a drawing course. That chance meeting changed my life for the better.  Early in my academic and artistic pursuit, I chose to concentrate on 3D works, but soon thereafter, I moved towards painting and drawing.  Upon receiving a BS in Studio Art in 1992, I searched and found gallery representation in Nashville, Tn., where I lived after college.  For nearly six years, I built a favorable exhibition record while working a regular 9 to 5 job. In 1997, I made the decision to further my education by pursuing an MFA. In 1998 my wife and I moved to Hinesville, Ga as I was accepted into the Savannah College of Art and Design under a Presidential Fellowship award. In 2000, I received my MFA in painting and accepted an offer to teach at my undergraduate alma mater, Tennessee State University. I teach painting, drawing, 3D design, and Art Appreciation. I truly love teaching as it also allows me to continue creating and exhibiting my work in group and solo shows, all the while connecting with eager young creative minds.
