About the Artist:
I was an artist long before I claimed the title.
I spent my childhood writing and drawing lives of characters I created,
chasing big Hollywood dreams by recording music and scripted short films on a broken camcorder.
I spent my twenties trying to prove my worthiness, while losing a quiet battle with addiction.
I've turned my struggles into art, both visual and written.
For the first time
in a long time,
I am me.
