I began painting murals at the age of 17. It was the first vehicle that allowed my ideas to connect with an audience.
For commercial projects, I work closely with my clients on concept development, and ensure at every stage that the result
embodies their message. More personal expressions are drawn from the same set of ideas and preoccupations informing
my easel works: our vision of the universe and ourselves, and the fundamental questions that arise from the human experience.

LOSE YOURSELF, 2016
Acrylic on Primed Stucco, approx. 8 x 12 ft.

"Perfection isn't just about control. It's also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience. Transcendence."

PIETA 2013 (Halted Project)
Acrylic on Drywall, 7.5 x 20.5 ft.
A volunteer project for my alma mater, Pitzer College. Originally located in the hallway adjacent to the fitness room
at the Gold Student Center, the mural in progress has since been destroyed as the wall it was on was repurposed as
a mirrored surface for the new pilates center. The concept, however, still exists, and I am now searching for a new
location to deploy it. (Interested?) The finished mural will feature a bit of sleight of hand, here not yet shown.
