I'm best known as an artist and designer, but relaxing makes me tense, so I tend to put in a lot of hours on diverse projects.
I've been making art professionally since about 1995, and have made a full-time living as an artist since 2000. On the way to a successful art career I've been a poet and writer, a tech geek, a print and web designer, illustrator, industrial designer, musician, teacher, actor, set designer and even a paid guru once.
I started Art Heroes Radio to share what I know with other artists and help them achieve success in their lives and work. I've spent years doing one-on-one coaching with other artists… it finally occurred to me that by sharing these conversations, they could reach more people.
As an early pioneer of selling art online, I've consulted with companies including Six Apart, PayPal, 1000 Markets and others to help build better tools for artists and small businesses to succeed on the web.
It's all the same thing in the end— I wake up most days thinking about how I want to change, fix or improve some aspect of the world. And after a couple cups of coffee I get started on it. My specialty is impossibility remediation: if it can't be done, I'm on it.
