I consider myself a sculptor, I'm based in Brooklyn, New York. My work veers between 2 and 3-dimensional, often settling on 2.5 dimensions.

Much of what I do is site-specific installation; I aim to create an experience that can be entered, either physically or metaphorically. It’s the story of one moment, distilled from a series of many possibilities.

My background in bodywork is a part of my art. Both require looking closely, and finding meaning and connection in quiet spaces that are often un-illuminated.

My work documents the place between light and dark. Individual pieces become reminders of past, present and future experience, just as record of all experience resides within and upon the physical body.
