I am a storyteller, but my stories do not always follow a linear narrative. I stole my dad's camera at 4, I began painting while in kindergarten, created and voiced fictional radio shows when I was 6, I started dancing and playing organized sports in the 1st grade, I sang in choirs all throughout my youth, and I completed a fine-arts-track program in high school.
As I sought out new ways to my shape creative personality, all conventional artistic practice was shunned in favor of dissident expression. I left my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio and moved to Alaska, then Washington State, California, Latin America (Brazil, Costa Rica, Argentina, etc.), and Texas. All the while I maintained my creative focus while still coloring outside the lines as a creative director, live music hospitality manager, junior art director, art sales assistant, retail manager, and research academic.
