"The difficulty of knowing interiors from exteriors, the implications of this in an instrumentalized culture: I try to find another way. I listen closely to trace feeling in the body, searching for the non-mental information of its unknowns; the physical self. I magnify the involuntary subliminal that moves me and, following the generated gestures, necessities, and urges, I build and move, making structures and notations." 

Born 1988 in the Bronx, raised in upstate New York.
