statement

My work is about comparing unlikely things in order to shed light on the failings of human reasoning. I leverage the rich language of the natural sciences to reveal common logical fallacies and the hidden preconceptions that influence all of us. I am especially interested in wordplay and the metaphors to be found between social dynamics and the “hard” sciences such as geology and biology. 

Born and raised in the Unites States, I moved to France in 2000 where I lived for a decade. I currently reside in Japan. Drawing upon this variety of cultures and languages, I employ my equally varied professional experience in design, fashion and art to challenge cultural and societal prejudices.
