My artistic process revolves around my intuitive fascination with messes. An unspoken, untranslatable pull, to help everything find where it needs to go— to find harmony. I’ve yet to find a more satisfying feeling than the l i t e r a l bliss of everything finding its place— order. I’m constantly challenged by this paradox. The desire for both, new opportunities presented by a mess, and the clarity of mind that comes with order. I find this paradoxical struggle for balance as an individual, a student, a leader, a friend, a brother, a son, and a partner. As an interdisciplinary artist, my compiled experiences as a dancer, a singer, an actor, a photographer, a choreographer, a comedian, and a writer have shown countless parallels and intersections between each individual medium’s process and life’s innate processes. Each discipline provides structure for an individual’s mind to intuitively manifest in. Ultimately, revealing the profound universality of humanity’s appetite for process; and furthermore, the universality of the human experience.
