I am delighted by the novel discovery of connections between and among all areas of human study and curiosity. Many of my projects are collaborative efforts with other creatives, and even the projects I create on my own are produced through combinations of artistic experimentation, scientific application, computer-aided craft, human and environmental interaction, engineering, and natural observation. By constantly mixing technique, material, medium and composition, I aim to produce a wide variety of creative experiences for myself and others that, in turn, may inspire or aid in the creation of future works, insights, and creative endeavors.

These light-objects, sculptures, and designs serve as examples of possible application and could be used as event attractions, window display decor, event center pieces, luminaries for the home or office, sculptural installations, and even elegant night lights.
