Are you far away? Or up close? Different perspectives will yield different experiences. This dynamic invites you to be present and engage with my art. Curiosity is often the impetus for selecting the subject matter. Who were these people? What did they stand for? How did they inspire? The messages, sometime explicit but often hidden, are embedded to reveal inspiration, historical context and the intensity of human experience. It may not be enough to study the image, sometimes retrieving the message requires a technological assist. Don’t just view the work from a distance. Come in close, participate in it.
I’m heavily focused on process and my work is defined by creating visual experiences from basic elements, often revealing historical or extraordinary figures. We live in a world where information emerges quickly and is fleeting. I aim to encourage the viewer to engage for more than just a moment and enjoy both the intricacy of the imagery and the underlying messages.
I currently reside in the city I was born, Los Angeles. I studied studio art at the University of California, San Diego while earning a BA in Economics, Magna Cum Laude. I earned an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and completed The General Course at the London School of Economics.
