I live and work in the United States.
At University I studied Fine Art, starting out focusing on experimental studies, yet changing my focus and graduating with an degree in Aesthetics. At the same time I studied Developmental Psychology, graduating with a Psychology degree focused in Thanatology. I then went on to complete my master's degree in Art & Aesthetics - with additional postgraduate work and dissertation in the History of Aesthetics. I currently continue my education, on a variety of subjects through The University of Oxford.
I have often lectured on the history of Aesthetics. I have also done a limited amount of museum and archival work. Daily, I live in the high desert mountains of the southwest and when I am not working on mixed media photography, I am traveling, writing and working with 19th Century Mourning Ephemera.
