Born and educated in the Midwest, David earned a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Michigan Technological University in 1979. Moving to Phoenix following graduation, he successfully pursued an engineering and entrepreneurial career. In 1994, David retired from engineering and started to work full-time as a glass artist. David’s engineering background allowed him to design and build his own glass blowing equipment. He has also designed several specialized handtools that are often bought by other hot glass artists. Using these classic techniques and tools David creates paperweights, marbles, bowls, and solid sculptures that are on display in galleries throughout the USA.
