My commissioned sculpture has been enjoyably varied. Figurative bronze portraiture with an emphasis on depicting accurate individual and racial characteristics being my preference. I am a sculptor, foundry owner, commercial developer, and a licensed builder with some experience in urban planning and renewal, and with a history of dedication to community service and to collaborative sculpture projects. I completed a Business Pre-Law curriculum before earning Bachelor and Master of Fine Arts degrees at Michigan State University.
