“I was born in Wyoming and spent most of my childhood living on working ranches throughout the western states. For the last 20 years I have called Portland, OR home. The Pacific Northwest is the perfect place to live for an avid outdoorsman like me who enjoys golfing, snowboarding, hiking, and biking. I have always had a passion for art and I am interested in many different styles and mediums.
