Professional Title
Assistant Professor, Foundations

I was born and raised in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota.  I grew up in a typical small town way manner spending my time fishing, hunting and swimming.  I attended St. Olaf College and studied philosophy.  When I decided to study art I transferred to the University of Minnesota and earned a BFA in sculpture.  I moved to Los Angeles and earned a MFA in sculpture at the University of Southern California.  I lived in Los Angeles for a decade working for museums and galleries.  Since moving back to Minnesota I have been working to develop cast iron as a sculptural medium.
