In the early 1990's I was finishing up my degree in Metal/Jewelry when I went to an interview for a screen printing job. The job was at a local scientific glass blowing shop and was screen printing calibrations on cylinders and other laboratory glass. When I arrived for the interview I was informed they had already filled the position. I turned to leave and then they asked if I was interested in learning to blow glass. That was over 20 years ago.
Since then I have worked full time as a scientific glassblower and part-time as a glass artist. I have shown my glass art in galleries locally and around the U.S. and my work can be found online and in select shops around the country.
