Biography: I was born in California, raised in Minnesota and Alaska. At age 24, I moved to San Francisco. In 2012, I moved to Newport. I am a full-time Vermont resident who never learned to drive a car; I promised Ray Bradbury I never would.

 

I paint and draw. I have done so since since I was child. I also write, compose orchestral music, and sing a bit (a bit loudly, anyway). In the last decade, I have begun making films including a documentary film about the composer-conductor, Wilhelm Furtwängler. I draw, illustrate, and paint more than anything else

 

Artistic influences: Gustav Klimt, Emily Dickinson, Maxfield Parrish, Anton Bruckner, Freddie Mercury, Melvyn Bragg, Isadora Duncan, François Truffaut, Stanley Kubrick, Frank Sinatra, Gustav Mahler, Sylvia Plath, Dylan Thomas, the city of Vienna, and Wilhelm Furtwängler.

 

Upcoming Project: a full-length film biography about Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley (1865-1931) to be filmed almost exclusively in Vermont.
