I am an American, multi-media artist (b. 1970).  I commonly work in collage, sculpture, and video.  My pieces often fuse personal experiences as an LGTBQ, gender-fluid person with narratives from the literature, music, film, art, and other expressions of culture I absorbed as a child and young adult, mostly during the 1980's and 1990's.
