1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.

I am a painter and sculptor living in Jersey City, New Jersey. I create installations/pieces using acrylic and wood with paint. My work is a Rorschach of collaged imagery, influenced by nostalgia, mixed with current issues. I create the work using old school methods/craft making techniques.

I grew up in rural mid-west skateboarding all have had a huge impact. I also work in wood restoration and decorative painting. I work with old art school friends that have a small company. We are currently restoring the wood/carvings in Trinity church in Manhattan New York for the past year.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

I would have to say the Metropolitan Museum of Art is my favorite, spent allot of time in there. Also my first job in New York was working as a security guard at the Met. I also love the smaller, not as well known like Mercer Museum in Doylestown PA. They have an incredible collection of early american tools/objects, the display and the building itself is amazing.
