Against my own best interests, I refuse to make just one type of artwork. Instead, I make many types, crossing boundaries between ideas, formats, and techniques. In the aggregate, these sometimes wildly disparate works form a cobblestone portrait of my true self – the analytical me, the poetic me, and the absurd me.
