BIO

Thisunforeseen adventure began late summer of 1983 after completing a Master ofFine Arts Degree from the University of Georgia and previously a Bachelor ofFine Arts Degree from the University of Evansville in Indiana.  Mistakenlyconvinced my tenure would last but three years, what unfolded was a series ofpromotions through the ranks of my profession from assistant to that ofprofessor with tenure, appointed Division Chair for nine years, and sprinkledthroughout my employment honors such as Professional Achievement Award,Distinguished Service to the College, Teaching Excellence and shockingly,Portrait of Character for Humility.  Surpassing these achievements is myfamily and working for the past 30 years with a wonderfully talented colleague,my wife Lisa.  She puts whatever talent I claim to have to shame. Above all, my Father’s eternal love lives in a territory beyond my feeblewords, yet is clearly articulated in my heart.
