I paint. I develop what my subconscious mind conceives – whether it be by accident or through an abstract thought. One of the most enjoyable components of the painting process for me is taking a step back to see what the canvas and I have enticed from the paint. From there, concepts bloom, shapes form, and themes emerge.
I travel. Undoubtedly my greatest passion, I delight in exploring other cultures around the world. Favorite places include Berlin for the history, Austria for the friendly people, and Panama for the as yet non-Americanized tropical warmth. Destinations that rank high on my bucket list of places to visit are Mount Sinai, Thailand and South America.
And of course, I shop. Who better to advise you on how to reach your consumers than a consumer extraordinaire? Everywhere I go, every day, I pay attention to the methods businesses use to attract clientele. I evaluate the effectiveness of these tactics on myself and the population, and store away hoards of information.
I photograph. For decades, my camera has been by my side. From my first 110 film camera, to digital SLR, to my handy smartphone - regardless of whether home or away. My pictorial collection is composed of everything from European ruins to breathtaking landscapes to candid shots of extremely strange and unusual things.
