Welcome to my site and I hope it has been an intriguing and illuminating experience for you. My goal as an artist is not to merely offer my work as a commodity but to invite you into the realm of visualized thoughts, feelings and truths into which I am increasingly drawn.

Like all artists of my generation, I live in the tension between worlds that are both practical and ethereal. In the practical, I am fortunate enough to be employed by We Are Unlimited, a Chicago-based creative agency where my main client is McDonald's. My ethereal world, contrarily, is in the quiet, tree-lined streets of Andersonville on the north side of Chicago. It is here that the tension between my two worlds is breached and I endeavor to create the works that speak from my inner self in the hopes of finding common themes with common seekers.

My hope is that you will enter into the story of my works and, if you are so moved, to contact me to continue the conversation and the story.
