Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas from 2006-2010 after earning his MFA in 2D Studio Art - Painting from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.

He emphasizes globalization’s role in producing greater connectivity between increasingly complex environments through political systems, urban/suburban development, individual travel, and international business organizations.
