Brand development and merchandise collaboration for nonprofit organizations and ethical businesses
Activism through artistry, change through purpose
I believe imagination and individuality are two of the most vital components of humanity. These gifts drive our creativity and are a primary component of our individuality. But more than that, our creativity allows us to express and influence in ways that might otherwise be impossible—photography, visual art, music, and fashion are all formidable instruments at our disposal in our collective quest to better The World. The things we create make us feel. Feelings can be powerful and power, when focused, promotes change. I firmly believe that change is one of the best—and possibly most essential—parts of the human experience.
When I started my journey, I knew that I wanted to do something more than just make stuff—I wanted to make people feel. For over twenty years, I’ve put my best effort into doing that each day through every aspect of my work. The companies and organizations I work with want to make this world the best it can be; I channel my creativity to help them in that quest.

The ethics of creativity and being human
I believe it is important for all of us to remember that creativity comes in many forms. It seems all-too-common today, at least in my experience, that people often confuse creativity with artistic inclination. This is a false assumption; it isn’t so much about art as it is about artistic expression. Lawyers, doctors, and accountants are just as creative as artists and musicians—not visually creative, but in their own way. It is critical to nurture our creative efforts in whatever we do because imagination is such a vital part of being human.
My work reflects influences of abstract, minimalism, dystopianism, collage, macrophotography, and often focuses on interesting arrangements of simple geometric shapes into intricate, evocative imagery. Thematically, I’m inspired by the complexities of the human mind, pop culture, space, chronology, and the concepts of order and chaos. My work is always evolving, but I focus on three primary styles: geometric portraiture, abstract landscapes, and minimalist dioramas. I try to tell a story through every piece; each series differs in subject and motif, but they all share a common purpose: to externalize a sentiment. To that end, I seek to both embody and inspire a specific emotional landscape in the viewer.

Contact + Connect
A creative, critical thinker with a passion for technology, art, and humanity, I’m constantly finding meaningful ways to intersect all three. I’m from Orange County, California. Now, I live and work internationally and love to connect with people and organizations everywhere who are interested in creating beautiful and meaningful things.
