To some I may seem like a narcissistic megalomaniac, others perhaps see a sincere dedicated individual who has overcome many hurdles with more obstacles to endure.Either assessment would b correct for I am often a very confident individual, but am plagued sporatically with bouts of self doubt. I fancy myself an artist, philospher, storyteller and friend. My focus lies in the intersection of the real and imagined, past and future, public and private and concious and subconscious. My endeavors in education have led me to majoring in English, Politics, Art and Education. My interest in the historic narrative of each has drawn me to many questions and some very poignant conclusions.In a more tangible sense, this non-cohesive study of the world has earned me a variety of credits in four seperate institutions, finally settling at Alfred University in New York. A newly dredged up sense of spirituality, soulfulness and optimism has clarified thatr I am back on a path that will lead me to fulfill my upmost potential. The website, reconstituted after many years of stagnation, is an attempt to be the intersection of all the phenomenas aforementioned- a very sincere attempt to make sense, for myself and those who my life affects, of a life that is all but ordinary.
"What's New?" *04.05.08* 12:55 pmA nagging sense of having not updating my closest on my life has led me to want to work on this page.... Currently, I have multiple term papers underway- on the Importance of Art Education in School, Teaching Styles as seen in the movie Dead Poet's Society and Space Farms Zoo and Museum and it's context historically and contemporarily in the museum world.... Last night, opened my first art show here in Alfred. It is one of four potential shows in the coming month. Called "Female Form," the show displays a multitude of artist renderings of the subject from glass bottles to very detailed scientific-like drawings. My pieces are cut from a sketchbook I was keeping up in Boston. The display included approximately ten different 30 second sketches done in a fine tip pen and black ink in a variety of size and shaped frames....pics to come.

"A new heaven and new earth! Can they not be ushered in without slaughter and destruction? Can we not bring the senseless machine to a halt, declare a moral holiday, as it were, and with a fresh new vision establish order, harmony, justice, peace? How much that is rotten and useless can be done away with merely by letting go!" - Arthur Miller, "Children of the Earth"

are for kissing and to sing with
