My journey as an artist began early in life. I was born in Winnipeg, Canada, in 1986, and as a child spent many hours during the long winters being creative in any way that I could. Knitting, sewing, crayons, you name it. This passion continued to evolve and I later studied painting formally at the University of Colorado along with psychology.
Initially, psychology was my path. For several years, I worked closely with social psychologist and past APA President, Philip Zimbardo, supporting the early development of the Heroic Imagination Project and co-writing a book called Man Interrupted, published in over a dozen countries. I later helped launch the documentary film, The Red Pill, directed by Cassie Jaye, and provided research assistance for Warren Farrell's book, The Boy Crisis, co-authored with John Gray.
In 2019, I felt compelled to focus on painting. The underlying themes of my paintings revolve around nature, the human experience, and the balance of our inner and outer worlds. Currently, I am based in Dallas, Texas, and am working on diverse series simultaneously.
