Offered as an art elective at Punahou School, I began glass blowing as a junior in high school in 2008. Under the instruction of Mark Mitsuda, I was able to complete 4 semesters of glass lab and learn a bit of shop maintenance. Shortly after graduation in 2009, I attended Pilchuck Glass School for a class taught by Boyd Sugiki (Punahou Alum) & his wifeu00a0Lisa Zerkowitz.u00a0
While living in San Jose, CA, I utilized the glass studio at Bay Area Glass Institute.u00a0
As a resident of Portland, I currently rent studio time at Firehouse Glass Studio in Vancouver, WA.
