Bio

Thirteen years old, upstate New York, Rochester. I took a seat in my grandmothers favorite chair. “You want to see a good film?” she said. Goodfellas spooled up in the VCR. The very next summer up in Buffalo my aunt humored my dislike for farm work (my uncle was not pleased), I watched Rear Window, over and over sitting next to a fan.

Every time I watch a visual discourse, I see yet another curious and imaginative way that a film is reaching out. Slowly absorbing the visual delight, observing every finely placed connection point within the piece.

I strive to make those connection points, every day.
