Growing up in the passive-aggressive South surrounded by a family full of painfully frank northerners, I was always impressed with the very Southern skill of being critical without being abrasive. I like to think some of that tactfulness has worn off on me over the years, but deep down, I'm probably still the same, tell-it-like-it-is yankee who never quite fit in after moving to Alabama in the middle of sixth grade.
In an ongoing effort to stay in touch with my obstinate inner Jersey boy, much of my work as an artist focuses on exposing hypocrisy. I enjoy repurposing imagery and text found in trusted social, cultural, and religious institutions to create unsettling juxtapositions. I also like creating experimental work that combines programming with interactive graphics to create user-centered aesthetic experiences. For less vague art speak and more actual work samples, please explore the examples below.
