Multidisciplinary artist interested in black-and-white film & digital to make images that involve concepts of obsolescence, self-identity, and existentialism. The relationship between machines and humans captivates his attention, so he explores that with a camera apparatus. Recently, he has been creating time-based videos and sculpture pieces. One out of eight cohort for the Summer Studios 2022 (residency from Project Row Houses) and recipient of the Beth Block Honorarium from the Houston Center of Photography. Currently a resident/member at Box 13 Artspace. BFA in Photography from the University of Houston.
