I cut and paste. My raw materials include my own recorded footage, movies, TV shows, uploads from YouTube superstars and nobodies, old family photos, magazines, and internet image searches.  I collage such media into narratives as a way of experimental storytelling.  These stories are constructed through personal desires, meme culture, and misunderstandings.

I dip into my own memories in playful attempts at defining universal notions of perception.   Childhood is my guide as I seek a time of instability between experience and thought.  Through a process of collage I explore shifts in meaning as I make new points of connection between objects, places, and situations.
