In 2001, I moved from San Francisco, CA to Detroit to discover North America's last urban frontier. For the last 13 years there has been little that disappoints. Unlike anywhere else, Detroit offers a uniqueness of spirit, opportunity and at times challenges. For 5 years of my residency, I proudly served as a board member for the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID). For the last 7 years, pleasant summer nites allow free movies (Walk-In Theater) to be shown outside in the park (Peck Park) down the street from the house.
