Like many artists, I've expressed myself through the creation of several bodies of work. I've explored ideas, themes, or insights through multiple pieces across various mediums: film, poetry, books, photography, and music.

Each body of work is designed to create meaningful conversations for you to engage in, be curious about and go out and live.

The most interesting topics I've explored are around self-awareness, personal growth, and using the power of consciousness to engage in living a creative and well life.

Movement means life. Lack of movement means lack of life.

Realistically, if you put yourself in a chair for eight hours curled over a keyboard, and you do this day after day, your body will probably have the makings of a structural disaster.

We must slow down and take time to savor this life. We can go fast sometimes, as long as we take the time regularly to......pause.
