I have been building models all my life. My Dad co-owned the local hobby shop. I started working there at 8 years old so I could afford to buy the AMT Enterprise. I've been chasing kits ever since.
I studied Scene Design and Technical Theatre in the Theatre Department at The University at Buffalo, and worked on a great number of on- and off-campus productions designing and building props and sets, lighting, sound (and a bit of acting).
In the 1980's I had the opportunity to turn my passion into a job. I was hired to build architectural subjects at Carolina Architectural Models in Raleigh, NC, later known as Scale Model and Display Studios.
Some time later, while working for Tri-Star Design Group in Raleigh NC, I did plastics fabrication and design, leading to some of the most challenging subjects of my career, including props and scenery for the motion picture industry.
More recently, I'm designing a shelf-scale, resin printed model of the Tachi / Rocinante / Pinus Contorta from The Expanse. Watch this space!
