About Me

After visiting the Nehalem Bay area for many summers with our children, I moved with my wife, Margaret to Wheeler, Oregon in 2016.

My background is in art and education.

I have earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Center for Creative Studies, a Masters of Art in Teaching from National Louis University, and a PhD in Education from the University of Wisconsin.

In the area of art, I have illustrated books, magazines, newspapers, advertisements and greeting cards. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have been studying, drawing and photographing the natural world around the beautiful Nehalem Bay.
