I was born in Bangkok, Thailand and when I was two and a half years old, my family moved to Washington, DC. In 1992, I enrolled at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon where I studied ceramics with Ken Shores. During the summer of 1993, I attended the Summer Six art program at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. I transferred to Skidmore my junior year, where I studied ceramics with Leslie Ferst and Regis Brodie. In 1996 I graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in studio art, and a minor in art history. In August of 1996 I began a one-year apprenticeship with Toshiko Takaezu, a renowned ceramic artist, in Quakertown, New Jersey. In the fall of 1997, I was a special student at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio where I studied with Bill Brouillard and Judith Salomon for one semester.
During the spring and summer of 1999 I taught ceramics and photography at Edmund Burke School, a private secondary school located in Washington, DC. In the fall of 1999 I began teaching ceramics and photography at Darrow School, a small secondary boarding school in New Lebanon, New York. I remained at Darrow for five years, during which time I became the Chair of the Art Department, where I oversaw the Fixtures, Furnishings and Equipment budget for the construction of a 12,000 square foot art building and was the head dorm parent of a boys dorm.
After two years of graduate study, in 2006 I recieved my Master of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics from the School for American Crafts in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology .
In the fall of 2006 I began teaching ceramics at The Rivers School, in Weston, MA.
I am married to Marimartha Clark, and we currently reside in Waltham, Massachusettes.
