Interviews are funny things…they really do make you pause to consider what you take for granted and to be self evident. I am humbled by the attention.


You can check out the Trifecta Editions interview with me in which I field questions about my creative work, process, background and even my take on art and economics.


Thank you friends and family, new and old, for all the support and helping spreading the word on my new creative endeavor…
