I was raised in Irmo, South Carolina and during my junior year in high school I discovered the art form of glass blowing at a local studio in downtown Columbia, called the One Eared Cow.  After taking a couple of beginner classes I instantly fell in love with the material and process.  Once graduated from high school I followed my dream to Jacksonville University where I obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Glass Blowing.  Currently I work as a glass blower at The Melting Point in Sedona, Arizona.  One of the greatest things about glass is that everyday it presents itself with a new challenge to overcome and helps further my understanding of the craft.
