I was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. In 1977, I moved to Toronto, Ontario, to study at the University of Toronto (Trinity College). I graduated in 1981 with a BA in Art History and Studio Fine Art. In 1982 I moved to Baltimore, Maryland, to study Medieval Art History with Herbert Kessler at Johns Hopkins University. I completed my PhD in 1992. While still a graduate student, I worked as a visiting lecturer or visiting assistant professor at a number of universities (University of Southern California, UCLA, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Alberta). From 1990 to 1997, I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In January of 1998, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to join my wife (C. Jean Campbell), who had accepted a position in the Art History Department of Emory University. I am currently working as a lecturer in the Art History program at Georgia State University.
