I was born in Detroit, Michigan, where I attended the public schools and

earned a B.A. at Wayne State University.

I worked for the federal government

in Washington, DC, and as a social

worker in Michigan, then in North

Carolina and The Charlotte Observer

newsroom. While there, I took evening

art classes at the community college

and continued into the fine arts

program at UNC-Charlotte. My art

adventures in New York City

began in 2009.
