Associate of Arts: Manatee Community College, Bradenton FL, 1993. Bachelors in Anthropology/Archaeology: University of New Mexico 2000. Archaeological Field School: Xi'an Jiatong University 1998. Taliesin West/Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, 2004. Masters in Architecture: University of New Mexico, 2005. My passion is the study and construction of site specific architecture within both time and environment. To that end, I began my collegiate education by studying past human art and construction around the world generally and in North America and China specifically. I concluded my collegiate education in a study of contemporary architecture, design, and construction focussing on site specific examples of human construction and how best that is realized in the physical world. My practical experiences as an artist and a builder include: construction crew 1993 at The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya in Red Feather Lakes, CO, Construction crew/roof repair at the Potala in Lhasa, Tibet 1998, architectural apprentice with Bart Prince Architect 2005-2007, and I have supported my education and travels as a professional tattoo artist for the past 15 years. Currently (as of summer 2011), I am in the final couple of months of constructing my first home literally by my own hand. The design is a creative solution inspired by my travels around the world, the natural high desert New Mexico environment and the program requirements of my wife and I.
