Four years ago, my wife Penny and I and our two poodles Vivi and Lili, fulfilled a lifelong dream and moved to the Big Island from Virginia. For me, it was a return home as my father’s family is from the Islands. We adore island life - the history, people, and lifestyle. I still pinch myself and marvel at my little piece of paradise. I spent 20 years as a history teacher in both middle and high school. I have taught various subjects, but ancient history was my specialty. I am intensely curious about the origins of all things. Creating things has been a lifelong passion and has taken many forms: renovating a 100 year old house, mosaics, jewelry making, and for the past decade, working with glass. My love of history, Hawaii, and creativity all gets expressed through my glass.
Thank you for your interest in my work and for visiting my page. Please email me if you have any questions, want to commission a piece, or have other inquiries.
With Warmest Aloha,
