What Keeps Me Up At Night
Mission: Do more with less. I draw on my passions of art and music to build a skill set, acquired over a life's worth of design and audio experience. If the things I make are strong, visually stimulating & unique, I'm happy, If they make your life easier, more efficient & enjoyable, I am fulfilled.
An Early Start
Apparently, when I was 5 I terrorized my parents into signing me up for private art lessons by holding my stomach and nutrition hostage. I wouldn't eat my veggies until the simple demand was met.
Razor Blades and Paraphernalia
In 9th grade, a very fair trade in the high school parking lot landed me a copy of Photoshop and some tools to cut graffiti stencils. Screen-printing came next but both mediums built off of my previous experience with painting and illustration & forced my hand into learning digital image manipulation.
College Was A Joke
Before leaving the country for music school, I took a few fine art classes. Those and the discovery of buffalo chicken where my favorite academic experiences at the University of Rhode Island.
Rock & Roll Will Set You Free
If it weren't for all of the show posters I had to make, I never would've learned my way around Adobe Illustrator, thus giving me the prowess I needed to transition over to the laser cutter and CNC router. My combined experiences in music (band // DJ) and visual art have culminated in my latest venture: Live projected video.
