Founder of Altamira

I love to create things from scratch and drive them through to completion. I also love art. As a kid, my aunt owned a gallery in Basalt. I spent summers with my grandparents in nearby Aspen so spent a lot of time in the gallery. I was fascinated by how the business worked and of course the art. Seeing this they started my collection by giving me my first piece for my 10th birthday. I still have that piece.

Prior to Altamira, I spent 8 years at Clique Studios, a top national design firm headquartered out of Chicago. There I started as a UX designer then transitioned to launching and managing new offices.

In 2013 I helped launch the Chicago Venture Summit, sitting on the steering committee until 2021.

From 2017-2019 I taught a class on web design at The University of Chicago Graham School.

Brad Pitt, Artist?

Judging by the pictures, we think very much yes, but Altamira is all about critical conversation and debate around art. What do you think? Do you have any problems with the exhibition or the circumstances around it? How about the work itself? Good? Bad? Otherwise?

Altamira is social commerce, so posting once and hoping your work sells will not get the job done.
