John Kildahl was born in Tacoma Park, Maryland in 1983 and has never been back.  He is an educator, artist, occasional writer and a very novice boater.  Kildahl spent five years teaching many forms of art at a boarding school in upstate New York before moving to San Francisco in August 2012.  He holds a Masters in Art Education from Maryland Institute College of Art and a Master of Fine Arts from California College of the Arts.  Kildahl’s artistic practice is base in an inability to make anything and a love of all things obtuse and silly.
