STATEMENT I am consumed by questions that are altogether routine in human history; but that isn't to say they are unremarkable. The human experience is a universal one. My experience is, I would presume, like yours. Nonetheless, I focus on retelling these stories as I've seen them. I take great care for intentionality both technically and symbolically, in crafting these stories; and while the medium often changes, my approach remains the same: Remain a student, subject myself to pain, and fight my own fear of losing control with an almost compulsive attention to detail and intention. My mission is not to change anyones mind, it isn't to teach anything; my motivation is based in curiosity. I sing because I love the sound. I am another pattern seeker: obsessed and intoxicated by myself.
