I was en-route to California from my home state of South Carolina when I was offered a job as a glassblower's apprentice in the Missouri Ozarks. My plans for a career in music performance and recording technology were put on a 'brief' hold. Twenty some years later my fascination with hot glass continues to grow. I have a line of work that is sold through galleries and gift shops that feature American made craft. I also travel to art shows to sell my one of a kind pieces.
