Since 2015, I have collaborated with Matt Lynch, founding member of the collective Simparch, to produce laser-cut high-pressure laminate mosaics that examine labor, industry, culture and nature.

I am interested in using everyday materials in unusual ways, though I also work with traditional mediums, to produce drawings, paintings, collages, sculptures, interactive installations and digital work.Through action, representation, allegory, and metaphor, I attempt to externalize my perception of, and relate to how others experience, the world, and how people make their marks upon and reshape it. I am interested in tools, how things are made, natural and human history, cycles of life and the physical and psychological effects of time on people and things. This directs me to subjects such as labor and industry, urban sprawl and decay, tensions between the natural and manufactured environment, and the psychology of contemporary life.
