About me

The most meaningful and life changing thing I ever did was to declare myself an artist. Everything else is dictated by the power of that decision.  When I look through my lens I am always exploring, looking for ways to capture elements of nature, fleeting ephemeral images and a distilled sense of memory.  As a self-taught artist with no formal schooling I want to create works and conversations that reach past border and elitist ideas of what art is and who can be a part of it.

 
(I'm also a really good time and am pretty sure artist statements are pretentious bullshit)
