I’ve been active as an artist for about twelve years, following five years of study. Prior to that, I lived in Los Angeles, where I graduated from UCLA, with a major in experimental psychology specializing in perception.
After college I traveled extensively, then returned to Los Angeles to work in the film and home entertainment industries (production, development, research and writing for independent film and MGM) and the music industry (national advertising, marketing and product management for Warner Bros. and RCA) until moving to Atlanta, where I had lived as a child and adolescent. Since that time I have studied and practiced art and perfumery, as well as experimenting in the nascent field of olfactory art.
I worked with Eyedrum in Atlanta for five years, as a gallery volunteer, member of the Art Committee and Board member, supervising all the volunteers and coordinating exhibitions. After their Grant Park location closed, I became involved with the new Norton Arts Center, in Hapeville.
