Artist Bio

It is difficult to edit one’s life, to sift through the myriad events, feelings, and friendships that make a person who he is, and then to choose what is of interest to a reader. Perhaps I can summarize my first twenty-one years by saying, “I got C’s in art.” As a biology major in college, my only drawings were of cat entrails and shark livers. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and a longing for adventure. Within months, I was sitting in a thatched hut surrounded by Samoans, wondering why I had ever joined the Peace Corps.
