His interdisciplinary practice utilizes sculpture, photography, and film to address humanity's relationship to the natural world.

He has furthered his artistic development by attending opportunities such as the Monhegan Artist Residency and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.


My interdisciplinary art practice is inspired by a deep interest in nature. I draw from personal experiences and extensive research to explore the potent relationships that exist between remote environmental systems. I strongly believe that everything is unified and balanced through the movement and flow of interacting forces. My work aims to highlight this delicate balance as I create unique interconnections through assemblages of organic and synthetic materials, while also considering the tensions created by technology and human agency.
