"You cannot honor the past by repeating it. You honor the past by giving it new life and relevance in our modern age."

I am a professional artist and certified Master Penman in Denver, CO. The youngest in history among twelve existing Masters today, I received my Master Penman certificate through the International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) in July of 2011. I work across numerous mediums in art and calligraphy and I am most well known for my use of traditional calligraphic flourishing and hand lettering in the context of my fine art.
