I just passed ten years in Los Angeles, migrating here from the Southwest, by way of a Masters Degree in Fine Art from the San Francisco Art Institute. Settling here into this region was my Emerald City journey. Here I am trying to use the influence of this great and diverse metropolis to influence my experience in this world.
What you see on this site are my interpretations of how I feel about the human experience — a fragile precipice upon which are delicately balanced opposing forces of all kinds. I hope you enjoy discerning these precarious balances as much as i try to strike a balance between these forces. You might find though, my suspicion that some forces are stronger than others.
