From a basis in the sculptural arts, I became interested in total human environment and living systems. Waste reclamation has always been a part of my work, from making objects out of trash to analyzing and creating methods of transforming this waste into something valuable. I was exposed to small-scale waste plastic reclamation while earning my BFA at Parsons. This idea immediately insinuated itself into all aspects of my work.

Equity, sustainability, and user experience are the core of my values. I am challenged by unsustainable and ecologically damaging materials, systems, and practices. I feel compelled to address these issues head-on by designing holistically and sourcing appropriately whenever possible. I see the universe as connected, scaled systems that we must honor and facilitate. Social, economic, and ecological networks are spheres which can be enabled and connected through systems, artistic expression, and architectural spaces.

 

I am operating as an artist, designer, material scientist, amateur engineer, circular manufacturer, social practitioner, and educator in sustainable methods using plastic waste as a raw material. I employ all the skills at my disposal; integrating ancient practices, adaptive design thinking, fine art expression, and high technology to meet the challenge of proposing a new, better environment.
