His work stems from a belief that reality is malleable and draws on his experience growing up in the American west to accentuate perceptions of normalcy and possibility. The sometimes quixotic work touches on recurring themes of human relations to landscape, space, and time. He received a BFA from Montana State University in Bozeman, MT with a minor in Art History.
