Statement

 

 

The work of art may have a moral effect, but to demand moral purpose from the artist is to make him ruin his work

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

I am an art enthusiast; one who is devoted to writing, promoting, and collaborating with those who share my passion. I believe that art is truth; self-development; a story without words. Pure, unconventional, anarchic talent appeals to me: A talent that surmounts mind numbing conventionality.

 

Having studied in Berkeley, California I had the opportunity to work for Caldwell Snyder, and briefly establish some connections at White Walls Art Gallery (both in San Francisco). In addition to the art world, I was lucky enough to collaborate with designers, photographers, not to mention a number of non-profit organizations.

 

In 2006 I decided to travel across Europe and learn to appreciate the beauty in little things; fine wines, cozy bars, narrow winding streets, and of course, superb art. I currently reside in Amsterdam where I am lucky enough to be surrounded by people with similar interests and an affinity for the avant-garde. Since moving, I have written for Vage Gasten, MOYA, G-star, and local musicians.

 

Writing and promoting art is my ultimate passion. I am a hands-on, visual, creative thinker who wants nothing more than to work with creative minds.
