I am an artist (a painter) living and working in New Orleans. My wife and daughter and I live in an old house in a historic district that we renovated ourselves. Mostly I work in my studio but I also have a business that does historical restoration and vintage paint finishes. I am actively involved with exhibiting and curating art in my own community and abroad. We live in a very family oriented neighborhood and enjoy gardening and kids activities in our leisure time. I am widely regarded as a great house guest and terrific host.
