I am drawn toward expressing observational interpretations, opinions on social and economic issues, distortions of reality and perceived normality across a variety of mediums and techniques. Within these narratives I explore ways to connect with people through stories, conversations and emotional exchange. In order for us to move forward socially and spiritually we need to connect back to reality and nature through offline living - by letting go of the majority of our mobile / digital obsession that perpetuates a false and abbreviated version of reality. Engaging through awareness and appreciating our environment is an experience far more sustainable than relying on manufactured material and mobile media to be responsible for our actions and emotions.
