B I O G R A P H Y

I want to connect with you. In person it can be very difficult for me to do so. I am not great with words. I am not a public speaker or a writer. But I am good at making images, and so I make an effort to make those images speak for themselves. Though I am telling my story, I want it to become yours.

Born, raised, and living in Michigan's Detroit area.
Working for a living and living to work as an artist.
