Noah is an artist and printmaker living and working in Vancouver.

No, not that Vancouver. The other one.

He studied printmaking at UC Santa Cruz and UH Manoa, two very fine institutions for which he is still paying student loans. One of his diplomas is signed by Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger — an anecdote that receives tepid laughter whenever he repeats it at social gatherings.

During the day you can find Noah working in the Fine Arts Department at WSU Vancouver. At night he makes prints in a little studio located in the bowels of his house — a space that many people would describe as a basement.

Noah is writing this bio in the third person in an attempt to make it seem like someone else is writing it about him, preferably someone held in high regard in their respective field. He doesn’t think it’s working.
