Actor, writer and visual artist. 12.25.84 / San Miguel de Allende_ The Berkshires.   


I´ve been hypersensitive to human sound since childhood, a syndrome clinically called misophonia which leads me to experience certain human sounds with pain. I have seeked silence throughout my life and in isolation have found alternate ways of communication, topics I explore through visual art and narrative.

My work took a turn in 2018 when I embarked on a trip to Scandinavia to do research on individuality, movement and language for a personal theater project, ISLE (working title). Hibernating amongst northern lights in the mountains of Lofoten, Norway, I started exploring with visual arts, which lead to my current reflection on subjects about sound, language, connectivity, the magic within the apparent error in chaotic perfection and how this is all experienced through the senses – approached through simplicity, geometry and narrative in my drawings.
