I’m an artist, musician, and cultural explorer. My creative projects are heavily influenced by my love for travel and adventure, as well as my ongoing studies in anthropology and ethnomusicology. These pursuits have led me to spend nearly three years in West Africa, and my experiences with the Malinké people there continue to influence my work greatly.
My artwork and music are a means for me to tell stories about the diverse world in which we live. I have traveled well off the beaten path to find these stories, and I am grateful for the opportunity to share them with you in my creative projects.
