Always symbolic and often surreal, the work juggles story telling within a staged setting with emotional and sometimes awkward personal statements expressed through the various figurative characters who populate his worlds. He continues to explore these strange imaginative places in an effort to expand the horizons of himself and those who like how his brain works.
