My work searches for and revels in the intersections of sculpture and music, form and sound, creation and composition. As both a practicing sculptor and (rock!) musician, I am on a continuous journey to form an aesthetic language from these two creative drives. 

Initially I used the concrete tools of architecture and silence, transforming stereo equipment and soundproofing materials into sculptural forms.  More recently, I’ve replaced the literal sound equipment with a more abstract non-aural search for sound.  My work abstracts the form of amplifiers and guitars to imply sound without even a whisper.
