Thank you for your interest in my work!
As an only child growing up in the Arizona desert, I found entertainment through my tinkering hands and curiosity. Fascinated with archaeology, I spent countless hours of playtime recreating ancient artifacts- then trying to convince everyone I found them in our backyard. From Egyptian ushabtis to UFO debris, anomalous artifacts were discovered all around the Tucson suburbs! Fast forward to the thirty something artist, not much has changed. I now make jewelry but still try to stage mystery and paradox within these small objects. Studying industrial design at RISD empowered my capabilities as a maker. A random job designing Bluetooth headsets in Silicon Valley led me into the field of wearable tech, where I worked for Google on future versions of Glass and other prototypes. Missing the open ended possibilities of art and the satisfaction of the hand made, a fall deep down the rabbit hole of making jewelry has brought me back to graduate school. Graduating in 2020 with a master's degree in metalsmithing from SUNY New Paltz- after a lifetime of working with my hands, I have finally found my craft.
