Artist Statement & Biography
My work revolves largely around the strength of the human spirit and the necessary balancing act between love and pain, acceptance and uncertainty. Inspiration springs from anxiety, and resolves it. Life and work is a constant figuring-out of the difficult, the ugly, the painful, and a challenging effort to transform the dark into light. Music and film are an emotional alchemy of sorts, using the immediate power of moving imagery and sound to rework and carry internal struggles into the light.
I've been painting and writing stories since I can remember, but the first time I picked up a camera in the 10th grade, I fell in love. Since then, I've been fascinated by documenting every magical aspect of life, both in still and moving images. It was around the same time that I bought my first multi-track digital recorder, and fell equally in love with songwriting and audio production.
