I own only a high school degree. I'm self taught in lighting + design theory. I've traveled the world and still have seen nothing. I founded Ronin Art House -a creative arts agency- because I thought I should. I embrace creative friction. I enjoy most words in the English lexicon ("moist," included).
My resume is littered with workforce experience, a few minor startups and a podcast. I've recently added a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called THE RIFT, to that mix.
I'm currently studying Kiswahili Sanifu, an academic form of Swahili, the lingua franca of East Africa. You can join that journey here.
I prefer commercial photography, featuring a human subject, with a touch of fashion. I've started and managed a standalone studio space -replete with incubated collaborators for projects vast and small- for the past five years, and counting.
My creative approach -no matter the medium- is to find points of tension behind the idea I’ve been assigned, or am interested in. I do several iterations on each point and usually end up refining the one I find most controversial.
Let's collaborate. Let's rock the boat. Let's detonate the boat. Let's show everyone else, why we create. Then, let's do it again.
