I pursued the corporate world for a dozen years after college, got my MBA, and was a business consultant in NYC. I am a self-taught carver and mold maker and developed the "look" of my creatures through trial and error in the days before YouTube. I approach my mixture of mediums as a puzzle when creating my creatures. My goal is to make a lifelike piece that feels as good as it looks. I make a wide range of animals as it tests both my carving skills and my imagination in blending the materials.
