See all 2019 brains in the pond at Nathan Phillips Square in July!
The human brain is an ocean of mystery that holds the key to unlocking potential. Each revelation takes us closer to what we believe is a greater understanding. Perhaps the satisfaction in this discovery comes, in part, from knowing it has been there all along.
The keys to unlocking answers for brain health, medically or otherwise, are within humanity’s reach and have, in many cases, existed since humans emerged. Human persistence and ingenuity usually find those keys - no matter how deep one needs to go to find them, or what challenges must be conquered to retrieve them.

Drawn to engineered, mechanical objects, his work blends the dichotomy of old and new into highly crafted, sometimes surreal, objects and creatures. He has a BFA in Graphic Design and years of software engineering experience, skills he uses to create experiential artwork.
