I love to spend time with the people I care about that's my main joy and in no small part what has driven me to always want to work jobs with flexible schedules that allow me to be free when I want to be to go on random little adventures. I like to go on long walks, I try to walk along the beach at least once a day. I dig Disneyland and I know it's dumb. I don't believe in fate or religion but I do believe I'm luckier than most people and have found a lot of wisdom in Buddhism even though I am not a Buddhist. I don't believe in an afterlife. This is my life and I'm trying to make the most of it as I don't think we get a do over.
I received my MFA at the California College of Arts and Crafts in the field of Jewelry and metal working and some of my jewelry work is in the collection of the Oakland Museum and other places and that's cool but I don't do too much jewelry work these days my art is more ephemeral.
I also work part time at a San Francisco auction house and teach art to children K through 8th grade at a private art and music school in Mountain View so I deal with the children of the Google and Facebook employees. The children there seem to be in love with the illuminati and incorporate the masonic all seeing eye into the artwork they make.
I also buy and sell art and antiques. I really love doing that. In this age of easy information and eBay and the Antiques Roadshow hipping people to the value of old junk there are still treasures to be found. My favorite items are the odd, strange things. I love to mix all sorts of eras together. On my desk as I write this I have a 17th century Bishops reliquary ring with a human toe bone in it next to a 19th century porcelain souvenir figurine of the famous conjoined twins Chang and Eng and that is next to a late 1970s sterling silver yoyo and that is above a small framed 2012 watercolor of a woman with a blue face and that is next to an interesting piece of lead I found on the ground next to a telephone pole the other day. I think my cluttered desk top is a good analogy of myself a Frankenstein quilt of all sorts.
Movies, Everything by Wes Anderson, My Dinner with Andre, Withnail and I, BladeRunner, Action, Adventure, Horror, Comedy, Drama I like wide variety things.
Food I love Italian best but will try most everything except I dislike Vietnamese cooking.
