I have been working professionally as an artist for over 20 years, dividing my time between fine art and technical computer visualization for forensics, architecture and manufacturing. Before coming to Regis, I taught computer animation and electronic image manipulation at the Art Institute of Colorado and Metropolitan State College. At Alchemical Eye Studio, a printmaking studio in Arvada, Colorado, I consult with other professional artists on ways to incorporate alternative process digital printing techniques into their work.

Community Involvment & Service
Whenever possible, I look for opportunities for my students to work on "real world" projects. Each Fall a local gallery/coffee shop, Tenn Street Coffee, hosts a student show featuring the work of my Advanced and Studio Level students. I have also been able to coordinate various collaborative projects on campus to showcase student work.
Collaborative projects with Regis University students:
- Mural for the entry hall of the Pomponio Family Science Building
- Illuminated manuscript of the Declaration of a Global Ethic (not currently on exhibit)
- Spiritual Traditions of the World artwork for Regis University Ministry offices
- Prayer flags for the Earth in celebration of Earth Day 2010 and 2011
- Banners for Earth Day Chapel service, Regis Chapel 2010
