The human ability to devise solutions has set us apart from the rest of life on earth. The arts have evolved with our species, to a place now unbound by form. Skilled production of ideas and setting them to motion is my mission. Art is often the physical residue of this process. As the representation of that idea, these products may then be used for interaction. This communication is our most broadly digested and its assets are countless. I intend to facilitate and further that transaction by involving myself in arts production and proliferation. As the many forms of art may be ingested by our many senses I aspire to communicate with them all.

My projects have ranged from drawing and painting to installation to film, audio slideshow, instrument building, dance, music, soundscapes, performance, to production of large scale events containing any or all of the above. Most recently my interests have been elaborating skill sets which are useful to man. Initially this was related to the dual abilities of fire tending and fire fighting, of trap building and trap evading. Primitive skills and how modern man attains such knowledge. I am interested in manuals or diagrams of skills and our teaching process. I want my work to function similarly. It is common for these skills to have metaphoric meaning. The successful projects I count remain simple in order to be related to by viewers. As work becomes more complex it becomes more specific, this can be useful and beautiful yet it is less and less digestible to a broad audience. I hope to remain boiled down.
