I make art that is fun to look at and be around. I like to make people laugh because it heals the heart.

I am deeply passionate about education and social justice for the planet. I want to create art that tells a story, like a Tex Avery, Fleischer Brothers, or Chuck Jones story. A story to empower minds to think and act relentlessly with love, compassion, truth and humor to realize their potential. Art and Creative Expression built the societies that have inhabited this planet. We must never lose sight of that fact forsaking our humanity for petty endeavors and short term achievements; ignorant of the long term effects.

My influences are derived in all things, and the people associated within. I am especially fond of anything that disrupts and disturbs the status-quo or complacent ideologies that directly threaten the realization of human cooperation and potential. In other words; my influences are people and things that allow/invite/show us contradictions to assumed reality.
