Artist Statement Throughout high school I studied martial arts and religion, having read the New Testament, myself repeatedly and listening to the audio cassettes. In addition to

biblical studies I explored self-hypnosis, astral projection and the healing powers

of crystals. The bulk of my time was spent on D&D, Doctor Who, pets and encyclopedias. It was in a commercial art class that I attended through a local

career education center that I designed my first corporate ID package at age 16.

We used an AB Dick printer that ran using emulsified metallic strips that were

engraved with a flash of light through acetate stencils we made with exacto

knifes and rapidograph pens. It was in a commercial art class that I attended through a local

My favorite topics of study in the university were philosophy, western civilization,

food and nutrition, African art history and world mysticism. What made these

courses most interesting to me was not always my personal interest in the topic,

but more importantly the way the teachers presented.

Around 1989 I got a job working at the university bookstore upon enrolling. In

1992 I visited the Virgin Islands for a semester as an exchange student and visited

three west African countries the following summer. In 1993 I graduated with a

bachelors degree in Liberal Arts with a minor in studio art.
I began uploading content to the web and participating in online discussions in

1994. I taught myself HTML during my spare time while working as an

academic adviser at the same university that I graduated from. I relocated to

New York from Colorado after teaching myself HTML and finding job listings

on the web which asked for that skill. Ever since then, I have immersed myself

in the ethereal mindscapes of cyberspace. Essentially my love for reading,

writing and creatve freedom keeps me interested in the Internet communications

and web development.

From 1995 thru 2000 I held multiple web production positions working for several

large companies. During that time my income increased from $13/hr in 1995 to

$50/hour in 2000. I began freelancing , became a full time employee and ended

as an independent contractor. After 911 I left the east coast to increased my

experience by exploring and discovering new ways to promote my art with the

world wide web, networking and producing independent art shows. In addition

to some galleries, my work has appeared in many alternative venues including

yoga studios, cyber cafes, art centers, spiritual retreat centers and other

commercial spaces. Since 2003 my work was bought by a marketing executive, a

hospital, a massage therapist, a few musicians, a non-profit executive, a black

arts festival administrator, a financial attorney, to name a few.
