Sketches (both pen and digital) of Jazz artists as part of a collection entitled "Phantom Groove" - sketches that show only partial pieces of a musician's bodies, nodding to the notion that a reaction or interpretation (both physical and emotional) can still be strongly understood, felt or assumed with distinct body gestures or expressions, while not necessarily showing off the 'full picture'.
Currently showing at Toronto gallery, Artusiasm, as part of a group exhibition entitled "Figuratively Speaking."
Art gallery: Artusiasm

Lise Lotta is a creative, Berlin based duo that create bluesy / folky acoustic renditions of the sexiest throwback jams.
In collaboration, we developed a concept, set design and organized production logistics to create a real life sex doll themed music video for their take on the 90's classic "I'm Too Sexy". The video is currently in editing and will be launched Summer 2018.

SiEA, a new 10-piece female electronic / jazz big band based in Germany and Austria approached me to provide a new band logo that embodies their moody, spacey and groovy take on new-age jazz. This was the result. Check out SiEA music here.

I've been a constant on-and-off painter my entire life. More recently I've been putting more concentration in showing pieces of my work and have a few scheduled shows coming up in Toronto and Berlin for 2018.
Shooting with a beloved Nikon FM2, I keep my camera handy with me to capture moments and places.
Here are some recent images shot in 2018 while in Budapest, Berlin and Toronto.
We live in a time where communicating is easier than ever - slap some letters on a keyboard to make the message go away. With communication being focused on digital and speed, we're diluting the importance of using our range of human vocality with storytelling.
In collaboration with Anneli Von Klitzing, we experiment with challenging our vocal mechanism reading uniquely sourced content. At its core, the work showcases the importance of communication and nods to the notion "It's not just what you say that's important, it's how you say it." With a finely sourced collection of content from discovered letters and poems to medical reports and map directions, we prove the power of script to voice.
Scheduled showing: January 2019.
I've played the piano since I was young and continue to "make love to the keys" whenever I can.
I currently have a studio space at Funkhaus Berlin, the historic GDR radio station turned recording / artist studio and venue where I let my hands run free with painting or piano.
Google the word ‘home’ and see what it spits back at you. Chances are you’ll get some results on ‘how to make your place feel like home with xyz materialistic thing.’ But a home is much greater than that. Home is the compilation of experiences, moments, physical and nonphysical; something that is not fixed and being redefined constantly.
That is one thing that most of us search for, a version of 'home', consciously or not. How it looks to us individually and the sum of all its parts, that's where it gets messy and fun. I'm interested in exploring my individual constant build-up and tear down of ‘what is a home,' but also discovering what home means for those I love, meet, interact with. What are the thing(s) that bring you a sense of comfort, joy, balance? What is your home? Why?
I’m currently in the collection phase of content which will be spit into the form of an exhibition/blog. It will feature the examination of myself - items that feel like home to me and how I'm challenged to reformulate my ‘old’ home connections with distance. I’ll profile other peoples definition of home and that one ‘thing’ that defines it. This could be tangible or intangible - an album, your oma, hometown, the moon or the ocean, whatever your heart skips a beat for. What is your home.
