For most of my adult life I have worked in construction, and for the past 24 years I have been employed as an ironworker. It's there I have gained most of my skills working with mild steel.
In 2011 my job brought me to Montana to remove a large sculpture and ship it back to Minnesota to be reassembled, igniting my passion for sculpture art. Since then, with the help of a mentor I have been creating sculptures, most of which are created from recycled material from construction sites.
I am married with three grown children and reside in Stillwater, Minnesota where I was born and raised.
