Art Opening

I’m having my first open studio! Please save the dates:

  • Thursday, May 9, 11am–6pm
  • Friday, May 10, 4pm–9pm

I will be offering original paintings, as well as limited edition prints of photographs and artworks.

Wine Festival

My event coincides with the Wollmesheimer Weinvielfalt. Eight wineries in our village will be open (six on our street), 150 wines will be served, as well as other food and drink.

There will be free wine tasting stations between the hours listed (€5 wine glass deposit), but the event will go later in the evenings.

Come, try some wines, and see my latest work. I hope you can join us!

Find Me on Social Media


No account needed to view!

I support social media that’s independent of the big dogs.

Are you thinking, "What? I never heard of those."

Okay, since you actually clicked on this, and I’m a bit of an ambassador for things I believe in, I’ll explain:

Mastodon is the most engaging, refreshing social media I’ve experienced. It is a social network based on a non-profit, ad-free model, designed to allow the user fine control over what they choose to see and who they interact with, while retaining full data ownership. It may be smaller, but that’s actually a benefit!

Glass is an image-focused social network, designed by and for photographers, using a subscription-based model, which also provides full user and data control.

Where Am I?

Sometimes in the Washington, DC area.
Sometimes I’m traveling elsewhere.

Otherwise I’m near Landau in der Pfalz, in the Südliche Weinstrasse (Southern Wine Route) region of Germany, characterized by endless vineyards, and bordered by mountains covered with fairy-tale forests. France is 25 minutes away.
