Then after moving to Seattle, studied Visual Communications/Design, dabbled in animation, then started my career as a graphic designer. I'm also really into the natural world, and cultivating exotic and unusual plants alongside tasty edible ones. Recently my art has started to include more electronics as I learn more about Arduino and microcontroller-assisted artwork and lighting installations.
