as a studio craftsman in San Francisco, and studied at the college of architectural stained glass
in Wales, United Kingdom. I have attended Pilchuck Glass Art School and studied under glass

sun passed though the windows depicting familiar stories of the Bible. Bathed in this light the
people worshiping inside were intended to feel God's presence. I believe glass craftsmen of the

glasswork come alive.Glass itself is a seductive medium, rich with intense colors and visceral textures. Making noteworthy
stained glass windows is striking a balance between these special qualities inherent in the glass and
the light. It is also an important balance of quality design, fine glass, and refined craftsmanship.
This is my goal with each piece I do.
