Born in 1967 in Fairport, NY. He lives and works in Brooklyn.

I explore art and literature separately, and for some projects I unite them in multi-media installations and performances. I call my unified art practice Three-Dimensional Literature. When I build a three-dimensional literature project, I write the text and build the installation simultaneously. Neither illustrates the other; the evolution of one informs the other.
