Statement

Growing up in a blue-collar construction family, I connected with tools and materials at an early age. My attraction to the pace and energy of urban living has inspired an examination of cities as dynamic organisms.

Referencing industrial materiality and biomorphic form, my work frequently touches on themes of origin and decay within the urban landscape, drawing on my interests in structural and industrial design. My interpretation of these forms often leads to quirky architectural assemblages reminiscent of childhood forts or treehouse experiments in miniature.

My most current work references the many ominous societal issues on our collective horizon with a measure of playful irreverence. My materials are typically found, bartered or bargained for, in keeping with my inclination to repurpose when possible.
