Shortly after graduating from the University of Dallas I traveled to Taiwan for a three month artist residency at the Yingge Ceramics Museum, in New Taipei City. The willingness of The Taiwanese people to participate in international cultural exchange made me fall in love with Taiwan. I had the opportunity to do workshops, exhibit my work, and visit many cultural sites. Because of the people I made relationships with, the beautiful landscape, and the cultures relationship with ceramics I have been in Taiwan ever since. I have established a clay studio in Yingge. In 2012 I received the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship to study Mandarin. This spring I will be entering my fourth semester at Shida University in Taipei. I am focusing this year on improving my functional ware, exhibiting, and improving my Chinese.
