About


I am an Artist Although I appreciate various styles in the visual arts, I work mostly in portraits and figures in the classical tradition; the classical tradition provides the tools I find most able to express my art.

At the University of California Berkeley I study the fall of empires and the aspirations that gave rise to the modern world.

While in college, I was on the UC Berkeley Boxing Team, highlight of my college experience; I continue to train and participate in competition

I once agreed to a draw in a chess match with Grandmaster Alexander Baburin (he was giving a simultaneous exhibition); in high school I was on the chess team and participated in varsity tennis.

I play the Irish Flutefeadóg stáin, and Classical Guitar; I am beginning piano.

I can program in C /C++, Python, html

I am proficient in  Photoshop, GIMP, Final Cut Pro

I can speak (in order of fluency) English, Spanish, Russian, Cantonese, and very minimal Welsh
