When asked about my work, I always equate it with creating an environment transforming my inner thoughts into reality. Much like an architect, or urban planner, that reality and humor becomes the foundation of the work. Beginning with the physical process, I work in layers. I am involved in solving visual and verbal complexities such as design and narrative. The result: mini documentaries that are based on the absurdities of life.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, my urban influence has indeed added an "edge" to my work.

I am currently working on a large project titled: The Z factor. The Z factor includes text and hundreds
of drawings depicting a new race of people that are being persecuted, which will eventually be spark the third civil rights movement. It is a work in progress (however the first phase is complete). Although it is metaphorically induced, the influence behind the work is authentic, straightforward, and poignant.
