About the Artist

My artistic practice is informed by the New Topography movement which sought to document the environmental results of industrial production. The enclosed pieces explore the consequences of unchecked corporate malfeasance combined with bureaucratic ineptitude.

My work has taken me to abandoned steel mills in Cleveland, shoe factories in Providence and former battery manufacturing complexes in rural Ohio.
