He has had solo exhibitions at Portland Pataphysical Society (Portland, OR), Cydonia (Dallas, TX) and IGLOO, (Portland, OR) and his work was included in numerous group exhibitions including the Helzer Gallery at PCC Rock Creek, (Portland,OR), Border Patrol, (Portland, ME), Patton-Malott Gallery (Snowmass, CO), FivePoints ArtHouse, (San Francisco, CA) and Disjecta Contemporary Art Center (Portland, OR).
