From 1985 to 92, I was making art and working as an art handler on Wall Street and in museums and galleries and as an artist's assistant for the sculptor Robert Lobe. I bought a super 8 camera and started shooting film.
In 92, I returned to Dallas to live in a house that had belonged to my grandparents and to search for a teaching job. I transferred the film to video and showed it on tv's in galleries alongside my paintings.
My first teaching position was as a Visiting Lecturer at Princeton University, so I moved back to New York for another year in 1994 and taught Painting for a semester. After Princeton, I went back to Texas and was an adjunct professor at universities in the Dallas and Fort Worth area, teaching painting, computer art, video art, and photography. I made installations of videos using multiple monitors and printed stills from super 8 film.
In 2001, I was hired to teach computer animation at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, an hour north of Houston. I established the Computer Animation program in the art department there and taught animation for ten years. In the fall of 2011, I made a transition back to teaching studio art.
My studio is in Houston at BOX 13 ArtSpace, a non profit exhibition and studio space for artists working experimentally and collaboratively.
