I cut and paste. My raw materials include my own recorded footage, movies, TV shows, newscasts, and uploads from YouTube superstars and nobodies.  I collage such media into narratives as a way of experimental storytelling.  These stories are constructed through collective desires, meme culture, metaphors, and viral formulas.

I dip into my own memories, misunderstandings, and desires in playful attempts at defining universal notions of perception.   Childhood is my guide.  I seek times of instability between experience and thought, and I am interested in how meaning shifts as one learns new points of connection between objects, places, and situations.
