Meet This Year’s Keynote Speaker…

He received his B.F.A. in Painting, Summa Cum Laude at the Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. His M.F.A. in Painting was at the University of Texas in San Antonio, Texas. He has spent several years embedded in top research labs with scientists, immersing himself in their work.
