Bio & CV

Who I Am and What I Do. 

I am a husband and the father of three crazy, amazing, and beautiful daughters. I am a working builder, sculptor, painter, and entrepreneur. I have over 15 years of experience in the world of fine art and hold a BFA in Sculpture from the University of North Texas. I spent my early career as the Education Director of the Amarillo Museum of Art and as the Exhibitions Builder at the Discovery Center. 

I am currently the CEO of Process Art House, a founder and operations manager of Modern Creator, a founding member and artist's liaison of The Collective Heritage Lab (a 501c(3)), and a founder and acting COO of Applied Comprehensive Therapies, LLC. 

As a business man, I have won several awards including the Top Twenty Under Forty Award for Business Excellence, Top Amarillo Small Business Award, and was a recipient of the $100,000 EnterPrize Challenge Grant in 2014.

As an artist, I have sold well over 200 works to collectors all across the world, been commissioned to do work for hospitals, banks, and children's centers, have developed and installed large scale projects for the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset UK, the City of Amarillo, and numerous clients in the Texas region.
I am a modern creator.
