I am an artist, designer and DJ living and working in Oakland, California. I grew up in the city of Boston, working as a painter and photographer for Artists for Humanity, a non-profit after school arts program that employs Boston Public School students as professional artists. During my six years with AFH, I exhibited and sold my paintings and photographs in galleries, civic spaces and offices throughout Boston. From the beginning, urban architectural forms and environments were the theme of my artwork. My early paintings captured the dynamism of the city’s pulsing transportation infrastructure, chaotic construction sites and encrusted urban decay. This passion for exploring the rapidly changing urban environment led to my interest in architecture and urbanism and ultimately compelled me to study both architecture and art history at the University of Pennsylvania.
In 2004, I relocated to the East Bay area to pursue a Master’s degree in Architecture at UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design. During my graduate studies, I explored the possibility for the replication of the Artists for Humanity program here in Oakland. Researching and designing spaces for artists contributed a great deal to my development as a painter, provoking an approach to color, composition and texture that has come to define my work. This language of architectonic abstraction allows me describe the spaces I inhabit in a vivid, visionary and dynamic style.

My work of the past few years has been split between series of large acrylic and gouache paintings on canvas and multimedia collages on paper. These abstract yet distinctly spatial compositions explore urban landscapes both real and imagined, capturing the textures, colors and sensations of the cities which I have lived in and visited, such as Oakland, Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, Philadelphia and Boston. The interlocking shapes and dripping colors in these works blur the boundaries between constructed and natural forms, land and sky, growth and decay. My work as both an artist and designer is informed by the unending processes of transformation that shape the city, and will continue to develop as my understanding of the urban landscape expands.
