It became an escape for me and a way to creatively recharge when I hit a block with my music. And from there, it was straight down the rabbit hole.

All these things have made me who I am and what I create as an artist. I incorporate a strong sense of musicality in my dj sets and apply the theory I learned in college to write electronic music with hints of classical, jazz, and world influences. I structure myself as an artist, just as I do my clients at work. This keeps me accountable – you’ve got to treat it like a business. Read more>>

I love working with the figure and my work is known for its expressive quality. I like to show glimpses of the process while keeping some parts more polished. If you can capture the essence of something with one stroke or mark, without over-explaining it Sometimes, it’s more interesting. It took me a long time to get to that point. Art is something you can always improve on. Read more>>
