I'm an artist currently living in Austin, TX. I've moved around a few places but I grew up in Albuquerque, NM where I was exposed to rich cultural history and plenty of fractal vistas. I excelled at math as a kid, but by high school I really didn't enjoy it and I hated the idea of doing that for the rest of my life. I spent my classes programming games onto my calculator instead of paying attention, but I didn't consider that as a career either. I could feel something else stirring in me that needed to happen, but I didn't understand what it was at the time. When I graduated all I knew is that I loved to snowboard so I decided to make a career out of filming snowboard movies. I took some video classes, and in the matter of a couple months everything changed - catalyzed by an injury, a new romantic relationship, and some special mushrooms. I discovered a love for image-making and I was able to see for the first time that being an artist was a viable path for me to go down. All of my bottled up emotions came flooding out after years and years of stuffing them down. In all the time since then, I have never looked back from being an artist or doubted that it was for me. I've gone in many different directions with my art, from writing graffiti to writing code, but it's always done with the same passion. I studied drawing, photography, painting, and I eventually went to school for animation and worked at a studio for several years. The funny thing is, after more than 15 years of following my creative bliss it has led me directly back to the very things I tried to get away from - mathematics and programming, which I now make extensive use of in my artistic process. Perhaps the greatest thing I have learned on this journey of art is to love and embrace those other parts of myself, and now I enjoy them in balance with my creativity.
