I was born and raised in Louisiana, and studied art at LSU, Portland State, and the University of New Orleans. I currently reside and work as an artist in Berkeley, CA.

As a child of the eighties, I grew up with the rapid progression of the digital age. This, together with the other natural sciences, has always fascinated me and been a large part of my influence. My art has always leaned toward the surreal, and my goal generally is to create some aspect of hallucinatory or spiritual experiences, be it visual, physical, or psychological. I have developed a way of stylizing scientific abstractions that aim to expose the dichotomy in nature between light & dark, the natural & synthetic, and the organic & geometric. My pieces also tend to be somewhat esoteric, and I believe this helps to engage the viewer in a more thought provoking way. It is important for me to create art that not only feels like it is alive and moving, but is also capable of moving an individual in an emotional way.
