Biography


Education:  I earned my PhD in 2010, and continue to expand my education through various graduate programs.  I have degrees in History, Classics, Religion, Leadership and Education, Humanities and am finishing up Liberal Studies.  I have plans to get a second doctorate, and possibly a science degree (AS or BS) just to balance myself out a bit more.

Teaching:  As an instructor in Religion and Humanities, I love what I do!  I want students to love it, too.  I believe that education should be utilized not only in the classroom, but in life as well.  I want students to enjoy the class and to find pratical applications for the material.

Art:  AI started as a wire sculpture artist in the 1990s.  I typically do hand wrapped wire metal sculptures depicting ancient mythological figures, found object art, and some polymer-clay based works.  I have shown locally, nationally, and internationally, even winning a few awards along the way. I do some playing in photography and digital arts as well.  I am currently working to bring the community and the arts together. I do show locally so you might get a chance to see a few pieces of my work every now and again!

Misc. studies:  I am also known for my research into liminal beings, death rituals, and life-after-death topics.  I have spoken about such to various universities, organizations, and groups.  I have also been featured on national and local radio, print media, and television. 

Pets:  I love animals, but my two favorite critters are pugs and rats.  I do a bit of work for the local rescue organizations, which I advocate heavily.  I currently have Achilles, Odysseus, Pandora, Patroclus, and Chin as my pugs. 

My ratties are my other loves.  I do not believe in breeding rats, but I do my own work in rodent rescue.  Hence, I currently have hairless, dumbo, hooded, rex, fancy, and pink-eyed whites.  Most of my rats are named for agents of "The Shadow", as I have a great love of pulp fiction and comic books.
