Since 2007

…Born 1981 in Middletown, NY, I began painting in public by the age of nine, with harmless spray paintings in local train tunnels. Various forms of this and other publicly displayed work carried me through to Pratt Institute graduating in 2002 with a BFA in painting.

Pace Digital Gallery offers a unique and challenging public environment, where as, through the sheer
verticality of the space, the selected artworks combine to visually communicate a sense of claustrophobic
post-millennial anxiety mixed with an undefinable euphoria, liberation, and freedom.
