I am a person who does things and makes things. Some of these things might be considered as art.
I do slow work. It's about experience. I'm interested in slowing down, and in inviting the viewer to slow down. My mind is intensely inquisitive and sometimes frenetically-active. Give me a drag chute, a timescale much larger than the momentary, a breath of embodied experience, a respite within a culture of instant gratification, hurry, impatience, and demanded productivity.
My practice is characterized by slowness, quietness, and stillness. I work through site-specificity, installation, photography, video, and objects. I am a philosopher. I strive for the sublime as much as the quotidian. I play, find, collect, ruminate, and curate. I concern myself with perception, space, place, and time. Sometimes I think my goal is to make something that is nothing.

- Some Facebook-based galleries of ceramic works, 2010-2011 at UIUC:
- During Spring 2011 I did a lengthy installation project and study that was very sensitive to space and light, but also produced a volume of components and digital images. I also did some other interesting works based in a line of thought extended by and through collection and accumulation over time. I look forward to sharing some of that work here.

- Archive: there are lots more works and doings that might be shared, which I think are interesting and worth sharing. I'd like to use indexhibit to share them, and my accompanying thoughts, in a more conversational way.
- Architecture: Building 13. A $13M design-build renovation of a 1904 bearing masonry building on the historic campus at Great Lakes Naval Base. While employed by the architecture firm that was AOR (and in turn employed by the design-build joint venture), I served as project architect and later acted as project manager. It was an incredible experience, from design through construction admin, that spanned over two years of my architecture career.
