"There's a feeing I get when I look to the west." - Led Zeppelin
I am an American, multi-media artist. I commonly work in collage, sculpture, and video. Much of my work possesses narratives of “autobiographical fiction”. These narratives blend actual events, dreams, and desires I experienced as an LGBTQ+ youth and young adult, during the 1980’s and 1990’s, with threads of fictions influenced through the literature, music, film, art, and other expressions of culture I absorbed during this time. Escapism was a panacea to the isolation and fear I felt during my youth. The world around me seemed steeped in conformity, homophobia, and later, darkness as AIDS began its ravage of the LGBTQ+ community I hoped to become part, and made the expression of love seem toxic.
I live and create in San Francisco Bay, CA.
