purpose

My mission is to “Capture Life’s Passion” so that I may “Curate Life Through The Language Of Design.”

To that end, I am a contemporary artist who draws on my diverse experience in storytelling, via literature and documentary filmmaking, to create communicative photographic works, curated contemporary art exhibitions and large-scale corporate experiential activations.

I have displayed works and produced interactive engagements throughout the Americas including Canada, the United States, Colombia and the Caribbean. My works are held in private, corporate, and public collections throughout North America.
