I am an artist. Art is the language of life. I love utilizing the senses, words, sounds, and
visual forms to interpret the world and communicate
a variety of methods. I can call myself a multimedia artist, writer, performer, director, photographer, videographer, editor, lyricist, creative consultant, coach, choreographer, designer, event planner, producer, and Jack-of-Many Trades. The key is to enjoy doing it and to do one's best to do it well.
I am interested in consciously celebrating the diversity that life offers. I enjoy
pointing out unusual synchronicities and playing with
how different elements can be connected in profound or
entertaining ways. My art often examines archetypes of
universal interest, balances
with tragedy, includes sensory delights,
the mind along with the heart.
it is a responsibility in this era to present work
that not only
"looks good", but is meaningful as well - often with socio-political and queer empowered themes. When I
create, I try
to construct a world I want to
spend more time inhabiting, and one that viewers would
gain from by investigating
In addition to creating my own artwork, I
operate as a freelance multimedia artist and creative
consultant. I am often hired by artistic peers
to direct, produce and/or document live events, organize their lives for accessing more creativity, or designing video and/or graphic elements for their work.
"I am a creative
and spiritual re-evolutionary, here to explore
the known and unknown worlds with art and soul, sharing
results in a responsible and engaging manner."

I was born and raised in a rural community just outside
of Iowa City, Iowa. I hold a BA double majoring
Film & Media Production and Theatre Arts, with an emphasis in writing and directing.
After moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career
in the movie industry, I worked as an assistant
in the Art Department of several
shows. From there I discovered a more immediate
interest in multimedia
Having held positions both backstage and onstage, in front of and behind camera,
and with various professional administrative
responsibilities I feel I've gained a rather unique
and well-rounded experience in the entertainment
As a creative consultant and freelance artist, I take commissions and seek grants
for continuing artistic endeavors. Please check
out my consulting page for more information on the various services I offer.
I trained for 7 years under the mentorship of Rachel Rosenthal as a performance
theatre artist, with a focus on various improvisational
forms. I honed my art in an unusual underground
combine performance techniques with intense visual
music, and multimedia. My work usually balances
humor with tragedy, includes sensory delights,
presents subjects of archetypal interest, and engages
the mind along with the heart.
I'm a passionate writer. My studies and training include fiction,
non-fiction, poetry, stage script and screenwriting.
I am particularly fond of writing lyrics to a
wide variety of songs.
My visual art includes works of digital photography, graphic design, collage,
watercolor & acrylic painting, sculpture, mixed media assemblages, and installations.
As a video designer and director, I shoot, edit and design video for
both traditional movie viewing and live performance

I am a life-artist, taking to heart the philosophy that life is the art. By nurturing artistic energy in one's personal life and experiencing life
endeavors through a creative process, one is
celebrating actively with the Universe. I am
interested in a protean approach to a variety
of art forms to further illuminate the journey.
Sharing is a key factor in the completion of
a creative act, whether it be with audience large
or small, human or otherwise, for all life forms
hold a type of consciousness that connects to
the greater whole and we benefit by being open
to, for, and with it.
Another artistic life path is the exploration into the healing properties and
transformational potentialities of sacred space,
ritual, meditation, reiki energy, touch, tantra,
other health-conscious lifestyles.
There is a progression towards understanding ancient ways and shamanic customs
with a modern reverence born of experience and
scientific correlation. The fusion and collaboration
between the artistic, technological, and spiritual
realms which honor the
Earth and the natural world are essential for our
survival in the future. We can take
the best of the past with the best of the
modern world to create the best future, but we
to engage ourselves
in a dialogue about what currently is not
benefiting the entire web of life and actively change
harmful modes of extremism and instability into
one of sustainable balance.
I pursue new possibilities. Let the ReEvolution ReBegin!
