About the Artist

I was born in Louisville, KY and spent my childhood drawing and painting with whatever I could get my hands on. And I played video games. In the Visual Arts magnet program at duPont Manual High School, I worked on my fine arts skills. And I played video games. I went on to receive a BFA in painting from Maryland Institute College of Art. 

And I played video games. 

I now live and work in New York City, designing and coding open-source civic software. And I do play fewer video games. But I still reminisce about those days of solid, frustrating, rewarding, classic, 8-bit games. 

These paintings wink at moments from my childhood, extracting simple maxims with more than a little irony. 

Hope you enjoy!
