“My work generates satire; humors and mocks actions which have affecting reactions, by creating a commentary on social, political or individual responses. Experimentation becomes entertainment, as investigating ideas become comfort of expression.”


It all begins at home, whether you start or end the bond,
whether you build or destroy.
