I am a representational oil painter located in Chattanooga, TN USA.

I began painting with oils full time in 2014. I am drawn to abstracted representational works with decisive mark making and ambiguous narratives where the peripherals and "the space in between" are suggested not described. I have a background in front-end web development, and was employed as a wide-area network engineer for NASA upon graduation from university.
