I grew up in the woods of late-1960's Wisconsin with a decent clock radio, therapist/activist parents, a raccoon and a lion. which is why I believe in the power of funk music, tear gas, unflinching honesty and untamed nature...especially when combined. I came to a career in the arts much later in life than most. Closely observing human emotional behavior while rowing other tributaries has guided my approach to work. I have learned from many generous people out on the frontier.
