I have always been interested in an aesthetic that conjures both past and future, the real and the fantastical. I have been heavily influenced by the writings of Borges, Marquez, Lorca, and Calvino. Their stories bridge gaps between prehuman and present day experience, implying a search to understand some basic truths and complexities about our existence.

Haruki Murakami writes of parallel universes, and of the people who pass between them – often because of some personal loss or searching. I like to think about these subterranean spaces as netherworlds of the mind and the heart. I have been driven by the questions that this literature asks, but does not answer. Big questions like why are we the way we are? I want to make sense of the senseless.
