I was born on Long Island, New York, a few hours after the winter solstice, on December 22nd.
I started in Architecture school at the University of Maryland before leaving to study sculpture full-time, graduating in May of 2001. I recieved an MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2009 and currently operate a project-based art practice in Washington, DC. I uses site-specifics and combine technology with traditional art-making.
I operate a project-based Art practice. Each past public Art project has been different aesthetically, thematically, and have required vastly different technical skills. This has been an advantage however: First, I have the skills/experience to complete any project from large figurative bronze sculptures, to huge panels of steel and kiln-cast recycled glass. Second, other artists hire me as a fabricator and am therefore proficient in collaborating with a range of personalities, viewpoints, and needs. Finally, I often work in a site-specific manner; letting the context of the community and the site/project goals, dictate the final result. However, I often combine site-specifics with the semiotics of archetypes; universally understood objects or symbols and their related ideas, concepts, and meanings.
To achieve this paradoxical balance I use cutting-edge technology like laser-cutting, 3-D printing, and CAD modeling, with traditional aesthetics and methods of sculpture making.
I do most of my projects through my company, ApiaryCollective@gmail.com
