I have analyzed and distilled my skills down to one central tenet - "I like to make sh*t"
In 2012 I left Chicago, after 30 years, for a 10 acre farm in rural Southwest Michigan. I had run a decorative painting business for 24 years, I was an Actor, Waiter, Barista and worked in television production. After the recession hit in 2008 my painting business slowed and I had to rethink my future. Remembering that some of the happiest times in my life were out in nature - I headed to the country. Here i am now... making art, food, trying to live responsibly and reveling in nature. I have not regretted my decision for a moment.
