I worked as an arborist for U.S. Fish and Wildlife. It was my job to maintain wild spaces in ways that allowed the habitat to flourish. I also was responsible for trying to mitigate the negative impacts pollution and anthropogenic climate change have on our forests.
My creative practice is an agrarian process that provides ecological benefits through the genesis of art. I use regenerative forestry and land management to aqueous material and create sculpture.
I collect all of the materials for my work directly from the landscape. I use the wood that results from beneficial forestry application, and utilize materials that are detrimental to healthy habitats like invasive plants and litter.

The work shows a human, driven by a human behavior; creativity, can be a beneficial participant within an ecosystem.
