Founder/Board Member

My late wife, Alexa Rose, brought this electrical engineer to a life and home filled with art and whimsy. Alexa was a puppeteer, a poet, a pianist, a linguist, a humorist, a watercolor artist, and so much else. Her connection to and her desire to support Boise Valley’s Art Community and its individual artists was the inspiration for this Foundation. My own creative work is seemingly a knack for renovating and restoring notable, architectural properties from Boise’s past. What began simply as an endeavor to support my family, has grown to where it supports not only my immediate family, but also aids an extended family of community artists. Alexa’s vision and her Foundation will hopefully continue for generations to come.
