His work has appeared in numerous one person and group exhibitions and is in a number of public and corporate collections. He is currently represented by the More Gallery in Philadelphia, and a professor of drawing and painting at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Of his work, he said that, “[it], for the most part, is about the creation of imagined environments. It is from the two places that I inhabit, city and country, that I take impulses, found in the ambience of rhythms and spaces particular to these discrete places.”
