"I've always been entranced by the portrayal of music, prose and poetry as an abstract visual transformation. Though I have played instruments, saxophone being most prevalent, performing in front of an audience never felt very comfortable to me. Expressing rhythm, harmony, symbiosis, story, narrative through light and visual medium is a passion that drives my life forward and gives my work real meaning. Mood, drama, intimacy, anger, exuberance & fear; the light that shines from each of us and connects us, a transcendent energy source. I am so fortunate that I get an opportunity to tap into that in a way that helps to inspire and enhance people's experiences of things that they love."
