Most importantly, as an educator, I teach people how to develop ambidexterity through penmanship. This foundational skill allows for growth in new and old areas with an ambidextrous perspective, and when linked with art creative break throughs are experienced. Through these methods students give birth to fresh connections within the brain and as a result I've witnessed amazing growth in my most diligent students. In a tangible sense, the program has remarkable impacts on the neural make up of the brain, improving chemistry, blood flow, glucose consumption, and myelin production.

Secondly, as an artist I have deep interest in action, repetition, meditation, and balance. I consider the act of creating a medicine to my mind and soul. I enjoy exploring the different ways I can use my body. I can appreciate my own work the most when I've become entranced by the process and do not wish to stop. Balance is what allows me to say the work is complete, an element I consider compositionally but also conceptually; I think of the labor as testament to a work's energy. What I give to the work, is in turn given to the spectator through the work, thus I am attempting to charge my work with positive energy for others to be inspired.
As a curator I apply much of my artistic philosophy, however, it is my firm belief that I am limited in what I can solely offer and must collaborate in order to expand in my direction of growth. I think it is ever more important for there to be persons interested in serving as glue to bring other artists together so that we may further elaborate our own understandings.
