Statement

My work is consistently drawn to the romantic and absurd ideal of the body acting as a translation machine of experience and story.  I believe in the potential of the personal voice, and the body itself, to act as diversionary forces.  I use photography, video, and text as performative and documentary tools for my various attempts to pick through the seams of narrative and image.
