Q: Where are you from originally and where are you now?
A: I grew up in Syracuse NY, and returned to CNY in 2005 after Grad School.  I am about 1/2 hr south of Syracuse in Tully NY.

Q: When did you realize you wanted to be a ceramic artist?
A: I found clay in High School, and knew that I was interested in the way the material worked.  I have always been engaged with 2D work, but there was something about the idea of use that interested

Q: Did you make other types of artwork before finding ceramics? Do you currently make other work?
A: I wouldn’t say that I make other work, but drawing is definitely a part of my studio practice, and painting has shown up now and again in some of my side projects.

Q: Do you have an artistic hero or an artist you look up to?
A: Mark Pharis, and Jean Michelle Basquiat

Q: What is your largest source of inspiration?
A: Rural Architecture, Objects, and structures that talk about utillity and use, as well as surfaces that show the stain of age, use, and environment.

Q: Do you look forward to opening the kiln? Or do you wince at the thought of something going wrong in there?
A: I always love kiln openings.  To be able to see the development of surface and color is why Im drawn to what I do.

Q: What is it like being a ceramic artist in Upstate NY?
A: I love CNY, the landscape, and the rural spaces are constant joy and inspiration to me.

Q: Where else are you showing your work this summer or fall?
A: I’ll be showing at the NCECA gallery expo with the Gandee Gallery, I’ll have a two person show at Crimson Laurel in July, Red Lodge Clay Center and the Craft Boston show in the fall, the Clay Studio, and Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston.

Q: Is there anything strange or unique that people might not know about you?
A: I keep Chickens and play Old Time banjo.  I also love road cycling and wrenching on Bikes.
