I am an artist based in Western Massachusetts. My work grows from the intersection of experimental nonfiction film, still photography, and music. The visual artifacts of history and the study of traditional cultures within the context of the contemporary have become prominent themes in my work. Within this frame, my visual art explores the persistent visible forces of time and change. My studies in music have lead me to forge an original, modern style of songwriting steeped in the traditions of American music. Traditional music has also become the subject of my films and photography; my work in progress, Old Time, is a photographic essay project focusing on the roots music community in Western Massachusetts.
