Hailing from Greensburg, PA on the edge of the Laurel Highlands in southwestern Pennsylvania, I am an artist, researcher and activist. As a young man hungry for adventure, I pursued my BFA at Western State Colorado University. There, I specialized in traditional print-making and formal aesthetic theory. Years later, I returned to school seeking my MFA at Pennsylvania State University. Here, I focused more on conceptual and contemporary art theory and practice, while still obtaining a strong emphasis in printmaking. Since then, I developed a framework that demonstrates arts true power to incite sociopolitical awareness and advocate global reform in a provocative yet entertaining, aesthetic manner.
A fanatical lover of food, music, science and a true explorer at heart, I travel this world in search of novel interactions with the public. New experiences breed new data, new data breeds new knowledge and new knowledge breeds new reality.
