I'm an artist, photographer, peacemaker, and designer. I apply the arts to affect positive change in myself and the world. Art can tell stories and a well-told story brings awareness. Sometimes action. Sometimes change.
I spend several weeks every year in the slums of Kenya. I've been active there since 2009. Everyone should know why they do what they do. For me, it’s because life is short, messy and unique. I want to spend my life embracing the “mess” give my time, talent, and treasure addressing the challenges of humanity.
