Bred from an unusual strain of Midwest stock, Green Greenwald spent his formative years in Milwaukee and is enjoying his adolescence in Northern California. He has a diverse background in a fairly pleasing foreground.

With a portfolio of art schools, rock bands, radio stations, and an uncanny ability for the absurd, Green brings the eye of a seamstress, the hands of a brick layer, the feet of a bowler, and severe lack of restraint necessary to meld nicely and fill in all those little spaces where leaks can so easily begin. “A really large piece with some color is actually better than an egg with fur,” he would muse, throatily.

Well put, and we certainly concur.
