“I have spent most of my life working as a graphic designer and that greatly influences my art by employing a diverse mix of photographic mediums and styles. Yet, despite the variety of looks, most of my work revolves around a universal theme of man vs world. I enjoy exploring how the protagonist of man effects and is affected by the ever evolving landscape of the modern world.“
