Artist  | Researcher | Writer | Illustrator | Producer

searching ever for the uncanny, liminal, inexplicable, for it is there my work dwells.

Here's a nice list of the ways different institutions have acknowledged the existence of my work.

Other art- related experience include three years a professional screen printer and organizer in the midwest, one year as a museum educator in Miami, eight years of independent audio and podcast production, and a lifetime of crafting&creating ephemera.
