I’m an interdisciplinary artist and designer who resides in the Shields Valley in Montana. Before settling in the Rockies, I lived in a pretty vast spectrum of different kinds of places (from unincorporated areas to inner cities) and spent summers working as a tour guide in National Parks around the West; and all that seems to have a lot to do with my drive to make and share art conceptually rooted in the symbiotic relationship between humans and landscapes. The art I make celebrates and inspires thoughtfulness regarding how Western Society’s historical efforts to better understand and manipulate natural order alters human experience, the essence of place, and all that jazz.
My solo and collaborative work has been performed and exhibited at The Cooper Union, The Wythe Hotel, The Livingston-Park County Public Library, The Prelinger Library, Goodnight Projects, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Southern Exposure, and The Exploratorium. With high distinction, I earned my BFA from California College of the Arts in 2011, and one of my original designs was awarded the grand prize in an international competition hosted by the Buckminster Fuller Institute in 2013. My work has been featured in Wired, Gizmodo, Dezeen, Architizer, Fast Company, Tree Hugger, and DRIFT: A Magazine of West Coast Cultural Production. In 2020, an AMC TV series inspired by a project I collaborated on with Nonchalance hit the tube.
