About Me


create a slide city


im a bike dancer/activist and i play with video cameras. surround me with beautiful music, new places, eating local, veggie, non-gmo food and i am floating on a cloud of vegan marshmallows. i will take you on explorations of secrets in your city you never new existed.


money is an illusory and skewed representation of value, once we understand true value and are able to create and share this, will we be able to make a world that is free of suffering. my life's work is to value the earth and reduce suffering.

clowns, vacant buildings, rooftops, homemade anything, the flower of life, egypt, recordings of recordings of recordings, streetart fractals in broken pieces of ceramics, existentialism, guerrilla gardening and urban crocheting
