I am from a small beach town in Connecticut. Being from the shoreline, you will notice; the beach, ocean, and outdoors and in general are a prevalent theme in my artwork. Growing up and probably through college most knew me as an athlete. Creativity has always been an outlet for me and if it were not from encouragement from others around me I would have probably never told anyone I was an artist.

My favorite mediums are sculpture (metal/other) and Painting, however recently most of my work is drawing/ graphic design. The great thing about art class in college is having all the resources there and professors to encourage you, so I haven’t welded since college, but I’d love to have my own welder and also get back into painting.

I originally got into art just from doodling & then taking classes in school.

My work is mainly focused around nature and society. I enjoy a variety of different mediums and created College Collections to gain exposure, participate in a community of creative and like minded people. ✌ ♻

I graduated from a Liberal Arts College with a degree in organizational management studies. However, I made sure I had time to escape the classroom and create. With the encouragement of my professors I ended up taking 6 different art studio courses and several video production courses.

I envisioned the idea for College Collections. As I sat in the seat of all student artists who preceded me; expressing my craving for a creative outlet in a college painting course while pursuing a degree in Organizational Management.

In that seat was where I began questioning the real value of student artwork. Each year, millions of extremely talented student artists create unique pieces of art on and off campus for enjoyment, but also for a letter grade.

My personal greatest achievement has been embracing the fact I am an artist and building a community around what I enjoy doing....Also, selling a big 40-pound metal fish sculpture.

My future vision is to transform the perspective of artwork and creative expression in the classroom by perpetuating its value in society.
