My passions are art, community, traveling and motorcycle, and they entwine seamlessly. One of the most significant ways that I comprehend the world is by riding my motorcycle everywhere. It’s a remarkable mode of travel because it removes the separation between my environment and myself. When I ride, I experience the landscape through my senses, instead of simply observing it from a distance. Another critical aspect of motorcycling for me is that the probability for chance meetings and unexpected discoveries are increased; people tend to gravitate toward motorcyclists and strike up conversations. These fortuitous exchanges contribute to my overall sense of connection in the world.

Once I am back in my studio, my motorcycle forays become one of the sources of inspiration behind my artwork and writing.
