The inspiration for most of the work I create is derived from my love of, and fascination with, the ocean. From Vero Beach Florida, to Malibu, the majority of my life thus far has been spent on the water, cultivating a love, admiration, and respect for nature. The constant onslaught of trivial endeavors we face day-to-day in our world above, only make me appreciate more, the harsh simplicity and absolute perfection of the world below sea level. The fleeting moments of time spent in that perfect world are the inspiration for the things I create. I can only hope that by sharing my reverence for one of the greatest resources God has given us, I can in some way help others to foster an appreciation and sense of obligation to protect a world run more efficiently than ours.
