I create artworks as a means to problem-solve or comment upon issues of the everyday; such as social interactions, language or being an artist.
Whether making observations about the art-institute, being a foreigner or marketing language, I respond to each situation in a straightforward but self-deprecating manner. The humour is not deliberate, it is just there.
Born in Manchester England, I spent nine years living and working in Munich, Germany prior to moving to northern California. These international moves and my background in international project management are the fodder for my interest in language and cultural exchanges. I received my MFA in photography from San Jose State University in 2007 and I currently work with photography, video and performance. I am assistant professor for photography at CSU Fresno in California.
