Lance served 4 years in the Unites States Army, mostly in Wurzburg Germany where he enjoyed touring the countryside and central Europe in his old beat up 1979 Mazda and learned to speak German.
After finishing military service in 1990, he attended and graduated from Wenatchee Valley College and was awarded the presidents medal for academic achievement.
He continued with more education at Washington State University and graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, with an emphasis on Computer Science Software Engineering and signal processing. During his Engineering Studies, Lance completed a 3 month internship with Sandia National Labs in Livermore, CA, working with scientific data sampling and visualization software.
Lance then worked in Bellevue, WA in the hi-tech sector as a Software Engineer for 9 years, while pursuing his artistic studies and scientific visualization projects in parallel. When he bought his first house in 1999, he finally had his own art studio and began participating in regional art shows in Bellevue, Anacortes, and Seattle.
The rich infusion of cultures from different countries imprinted Lance and he always dreamed of going to the best art school in the world to balance out his engineering skills.
|That dream came true when he went to The Florence Academy of Art in the renaissance city of Florence, Italy and graduated from the three-year Sculpture Program with the Best Sculpture of the Year award.|
With the mind of an engineer and the soul of an artist, Lance continues to thrive in the beautiful state of Washington.
