He received his BFA from the University of Minnesota in 1995. He has shown throughout the U.S. and abroad in several group and solo exhibitions, and his work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including the Denver Art Museum, the Heard Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Westphalian Museum of Natural History in Munster, Germany.
