Every finished piece of Art initially starts off as an idea. These ideas begin as FICTION because they haven't yet been created, and can't become reality until action is added to them. The space between the birth of an idea and the tangible result manifested from that idea is where I LIVE  to be the most. This place is most commonly known as our daydreams. It’s here where the emotional and analytical parts of our imagination are encouraged to work in sync. It’s here where the cathartic magic blossoms. This space is infinitely boundless, filled with endless possibility, and grants us the freedom to be who we truly are. LiveFiction.net is my dedication to this process, the art that comes from it, and a reminder that our truest voice can only be heard when we are actively pursuing our DREAMS. 
Thank you for taking the time to check out my Art, Life’s Work, and Vision. I’ve invested all of my adult life into the exploration of my imagination. My primary form of expression is through abstract painting and sculpture, but I also shoot photography, videography, produce music, create Special FX for cinema, write and perform poetry, and have curated nightclubs, galleries, and residential spaces from NY to LA. I’ve never wanted to place labels on my creativity by referring to myself as a specific kind of artist. This unconstructed approach to creativity has resulted in my involvement with many different kinds of artistic projects over the years. I wish you all of the Light, Laughter, Life and Learning on your own journey, and look forward to connecting with you along the way.

Its been an exciting 2016 spring season for me. I'm currently exhibiting 2 one man art shows at Rooz Cafe in Oakland CA, and at Nectar Wine Lounge in San Francisco CA. Both shows are hanging at the same time and exhibiting a combination of large scale paintings and sculpture. There are 18 pieces of art in total,  divided equally with 9 in each venue. One of my most favorite things about making art for a living is when I have the opportunity to curate a one man show in a venue. So having the opportunity to be showing 2 of them at the same time in 2 different cities is really rewarding.
