I have been a practicing artist for over 20 years and exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally. I have a media background in metal sculpture, environment installations and jewelry. My current practice is solely involved with Video Art and its associated Sound Tracks.

I have a twofold technical approach to video (MPEG 4 & GIF) formats that revolves around the contextual intersection of science and myth. One is based on both empirical research and theoretical proposition and the other on oral tradition and emotive supposition.
