I have adapted a view of the world that blends everything I experience into a creative opportunity. Visual aesthetics in nature, human emotions, and the harmony of sound have all shaped my work. My process consists of deconstructing the architecture and design of these experiences then saving the motivating elements and merging them together to create my body of work.
