15 years ago I was depressed, restless and in a job that I wasn't totally suited for. I was a partner in a design firm. I had a promising career path in front of me and I was working with creative people. But I wasn't following my calling. And I was miserable.

So I left the firm and I wrote a novel, produced three podcast series and created and performed a one-man comedy show. But I still couldn't shake the feeling that I wasn't doing what I'm meant to do with my life.

Then I started shooting and editing photos on my iPhone, and posting them to Instagram. They were pretty standard shots of street art, landscapes and a few featuring a thumb resting on a sharp knife. Fairly unremarkable. One night before bed I shot a photo of a magazine page on my nightstand. I bent and warped the page so the composition was unique from the original. The result was interesting, so I kept at it. Five years later I call the approach ARTSMASHING.

I shoot and mashup photography in new, previously unimagined compositions, and apply them to a canvas for painting. My images can be odd, disturbing, subtle and provocative. They depict people caught in intimate moments of vulnerability, shame, lust, anger, pride and peace. Moments we all experience throughout our lives.
