What neighborhood do you live in?
I was born and raised in the lower mainland, after a half decade in Strathcona I now call Mount Pleasant home
What do you do and where?
I am an artist, photographer, designer, craftsman, gallery assistant and aspiring publisher. I divide my time between my personal creative projects and those which I collaborate with other like minded individuals, companies, and institutions. My work takes me all over the lower mainland, and more recently across North America.
What are you working on?
I am currently working on a large Pavilion installation for the “Quinzaine Photographique Nantaise Photography Festival” in Nantes France which takes place during the fall of 2010.
I am also working on a series of limited edition books, and new small run periodical, and continuing to develop a life philosophy through my work at the Acid Sweat Lodge.
