Forming the formless, taming the spectacle, my life and my practice involve the constant pursuit of alternative.
Clear translations come in waves of perception -- mystical, subtle, overt; relational within the context of time. Objects, process, and inner vision seek balance in a wash of incongruity.
As a bridge between nations, my practice makes the unknown familiar by connecting new life with lost associations, all with a Heyoka's eye on the paradigm of potential.
