When I was born, I entered as a guest. Allergic to plants, animals, and most foods of this planet, I struggled with breathing, seeing, and keeping bones together. This led me to spend a lot of time alone in altered and medicated states surrounded by the protruding mysteries. With the help of my mother, I stayed alive.
It didn’t all happen at once, but there came a day in my early 20’s when I realized I was healthy, adapted, and strong. I was beaming with life and ready to do good for the world. That is when I first broke from reality. I spent the next few years studying design in college with my spirit stuck in between the dream and present moment, waking up and going to sleep overlaid on each other.

This is where I create works that aim to connect people together.
During the day I am an artist and entrepreneur, at night I am searching for the secrets of earth.
