I discovered my love of making while hitchhiking across the country. It all started with repair and maintenance, trying to keep the small amount of things I had in working order gave me a relationship with materials that was both aware of scarcity and denied limitations at the same time.  While nailing the soles back onto my boots for the third time I became aware that I was wielding power through that hammer, and that each nail I fitted into my sole was a concrete and tangible step towards making my life a little bit better.

       This emergent philosophy became an infectious curiosity and drove me to find ever new ways to manipulate my environment and create.
