About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Change the World in Positive Ways! Be an Artist! Find my Family! You know the usual.

ABOUT ME

I am an Artist interested in Social Change and the outdoors. Most days I can be found rock climbing, swimming in the ocean/lakes with my friends, dancing, or working on some social justice scheme that involves art or a Marching Band! My artistic practice includes welding for the community, crafting silverware and bring community and art together through social practice. I currently live in Minneapolis with my partner and our cat Bodyslam. All three of us are still thawing out from the winter.

PHILOSOPHY

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to them their own!

I am a rock climbing instructor, I weld, screen-print, sew and many other artistic pursuits. I can teach you any of these skills if the tools and right enthusiastic spirit are present!
