I was kicked out of college for being "too poor," but had the good fortune of being able to work with my profs anyway. Different concepts lend themselves to different methods of creation. I have done performance art, video and sound (a.k.a. music) projects on theatrical stages, in art galleries and museums, and in coffee houses for over 30 years. I build my own equipment and supplement my income selling experimental musical instruments and effects tp musicians and composers around the world.


Have received various grants and awards from the following:
National Endowment for the Arts
Jerome Foundation
Minnesota State Arts Board
Arrowhead Regional Arts Council
McKnight Foundation
Duluth Art Institute
Tweed Museum of Art
American Composer's Forum.
