I am a painter, muralist, art organizer, printmaker and book artist. I was born in 1979 in Clearwater, Florida. I received a BFA from the University of Florida. I have exhibited internationally and have artist books in the permanent collections of MOMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, RISD, Yale University, Walker Center for the Arts and other institutions. Commissions include murals at the Facebook office in NYC, Minnehaha City Park in Maitland, Florida and the Eau Claire Visitors Center in Wisconsin. In 2015 I was awarded a Housing Works and Urban Redevelopment Grant to paint a mural at the Minnehaha city park in Maitland, Florida. I am Co-Founder and Director of Cinders Gallery, a project-oriented non-profit art organization based in Brooklyn, NY. We have created hundreds of exhibitions, installations, and performances since 2004. I am also part of the collaboration Light Hits, where I create installations, music and videos with the artist Jessie Rose Vala.
