Artist Statement

I was born in the Bronx, joined the Marine Corps in the summer of
2000, after I got out, I went to Montclair State University to study art, and
am still pursuing a career in it. I currently work as a Virginia State Trooper,
which helps me stay independent while still being able to study, create,
and continue my passion in the arts. I don’t consider myself a scholar in art
history, but rather an artist who loves the history of human visual

Emotion and the serene are the main drives of my work. I leave the
rest up to the viewer. I am inspired by the extranormal and beautiful
utopias that are of unseen in everyday life. My work tries to understand this
with its relationship to death, and how the two are so intrinsic.

Most of my work is photography, digital or film but mostly film prints. I
find that film gives you a certain look that is more serene. However, this
particular image is digital and I feel best signifies personal experience with
talent for artistic expression.
