My vision is to create pieces like no other. This statement may be a cliché but this is who I am. I take in the norm, absorb it learning all I can, and then I flip it on its head. My goal is to not be known by name but by my work. I look to uncreate and then recreate. That is my name, that is my vision, this is my mission.
