MY STORY

Who I Am

After serving 24 years in the Oregon Army National Guard, with 21 of those being on Active Duty, Combat deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq and a Peacekeeping deployment to Sinai, Egypt, I retired as a Master Sergeant (E-8). Taking a different path from a career in Human Resources and Logistics Management, I chose to return to school and pursue art as a focus in my next stage of life.

Now as an emerging artist in the Pacific Northwest, I continue to explore and experiment with different styles, genres, mediums and messages.

PROFICIENCIES

 

LEADERSHIP & PROJECT MANAGMENT

Team & Individual

The art of leading teams, managing time, and controlling resources to produce outcomes is essential to success of teams and individuals in both artistic endeavors and business management. Supervised multiple teams and projects in logistics management to ensure the success of the mission while preparing for and serving in combat operations.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

Conservation is Key

Managing resources: time, monetary, and physical, is a critical element in creating art. I try to limit the amount of waste in each project and when practical reuse certain materials in the creation of new art.

MENTOR

To Teach is to Learn

Sharing knowledge, skills, and abilities, helps to encourage each new generation of artists to create new and innovative art.

Having considerable life experience both as a traveler and a Soldier has given me the opportunity to acquire several skills and
