|I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1976, the year of the Bicentennial. My mother was a
proud full-blooded Inupiaq Eskimo from King Island. My father is Polish-German from the
Steel City...Pittsburgh ( Go Steelers !!!). I was introduced to the art of carving ivory, in my
dad's studio, as soon as
I could hold a sheet of sandpaper. After an apprenticeship at a local Goldsmith's Shop
and a stint as a sheet rock deliveryman, a grain Semi Tractor truck driver in Montana, and
trips to the North Slope to assist welders and drillers...I decided to apprentice full time at
my father's studio. I have three sons, Preston, Jon and Mason ....And, a daughter, Allison.
