About Me


That is my #1 goal in life. 

Growing up in Michigan, specifically the Detroit area, I was always intrigued by mechanical items. I was influenced by Henry Ford and being a relative, it was impossible not to enjoy cars and the auto industry. It was an absolute thrill to be part of that environment. I grew up driving GT 350 Mustangs and Cougar Eliminators. 

In addition to cars, I had a passion for aircraft, health and art.. After high school, I went to Western Michigan University and studied Aeronautical Engineering with the goal of designing aircraft or someday, owning my own airline. I worked my way through college by working at Northwest and United Airlines, and when I graduated, I was recruited by Boeing. I have enjoyed three outstanding careers. 

My corporate career allowed me to own my own airline and air charter company, West Coast Express. West Coast Express was based in San Francisco. While successfully owning that business for many years, I also had a passion to make sure people were able to receive outstanding healthcare services. For the past 35 years I have had the privilege of working with healthcare and hospital systems to improve their emergency medicine and hospitalist departments and have assisted over 400 hospitals improve their services. 

I have always had a passion for art and a desire to create.  I had the ability to draw, paint and tinker with items and turn them into “something”.  So, I started making and selling paintings, musical instrument sculptures (from my love of music) and various wood and metal sculptures while in my 20’s.   As you can see by my website, I continue to produce one of a kind instrument sculptures, and art that is designed to make you smile.  I have produced and sold over 3,000 paintings (drip art, spin art, US Flags and various abstract art) and thousands of musical instrument sculptures (lamps, B
luetooth Sound Machines, paperweights, picture holders, water fountains and sculptures).

I want to personally thank you for taking time to visit my website and spending a few minutes viewing my creations.  I would be honored to have one of my paintings or creations in your home or business.
