Well I am living and working in Portland, Oregon as an artist and curator. I am currently Director and Founder of Gallery Homeland providing cutting edge concepts and ideas internationally. In 2000 I received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and began launching his career as a painter. After working at a gallery in Chicago, I suppose I found my talent for curation and shortly after curated an Andy Warhol and Factory Friends show, featuring such artists as Ronnie Curtrone, Keith Haring, Mark Kostabi, and more.
In 2002 I moved to Portland to begin working directly with the thriving art scene as an artist and curator. I was an assistant curator for PCAC and The Modern Zoo, where I curated a variety of shows. In 2003 I became curator for Disjecta, and continued on as Creative Director and Founder of Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center until 2005 when I moved on to stable projects. I now work with a large number of artists, organizations, and institutions, which shows Portland artists nationally and internationally, and most recently produced Lifeboat-Miami for Art Basel's International Art Fair, Lifeboat-Hamptons for The Scope Art Fair, Waterways an Istanbul Biennale project, and most recently showed at PS1 NY. www.galleryhomeland.org www.manifestartistry.com
