I'm interested in moments that encompass the mind and body, and speak to our human experience. Common themes surround energy, memory, sensory experience and connection.

Growing up, San Francisco Bay was an incredible place to start on this path. Wandering, exploring, and creating among its beautiful landscapes, jagged coast, and diversity of art and culture set the tone for my art practice rooted in energy and exploration.


I often draw on memory, translating sensory experiences into abstract concepts. I think a lot about what energy I want to communicate and how to translate it into my work.

Items taped to my studio wall give clues about the work and process: a cocktail coaster from a New Year's Eve party in Munich, a small sign found in a parking lot, a hot pink luggage ticket, a graffiti snapshot from a park in Milan, and other miscellaneous travel photos.

Influence often comes from the energy around me, urban cities, nature, science, spirituality, and symbolism. I love to experiment and use an ever-increasing amalgamation of methods and materials to create.


At its core, my work is about communicating certain energies through the work. Do you feel it too?
