I operate on the belief that, beyond any other mediums, Music, Food, and the Arts have the ability to transcend any creed, culture, belief system, or border. I have seen the power these mediums can wield across a global audiences, and their ability to unify seemingly disparate peoples or groups.

Coming from a traditional art background, I’ve always had an appreciation for making something from nothing - beginning with graphite and charcoal illustrations, before graduating to pastels, acrylics, and (more recently) digital mediums. Admittedly, most of my creative process is still deeply rooted in the physical world, where I can rely on an element of the unexpected, accidental, or serendipitous.

I approach the world with an insatiable appetite for culture, meaning, and real human moments - and pursue those emotions and memories in my work. I am a collector of experiences, an amalgamation, and a work in progress. I am a luddite appreciative of shiny new modern comforts, a bucolic who has embraced the convenience of modernity and urbanity, a recluse who has circled the globe in pursuit of the human experience.

I'm available for showings, contributions, & commissions and can be reached at:
