I’ve always liked being in the air. Whether flying myself or as a passenger, the expanded context of the aerial vantage helps synthesize observations from the ground—abstracting details of our daily routines to form new connections. Most of my work also explores the interaction between nature and the designed world. I’m particularly interested in how the details of weather, light, and elevation change perception, and how these factors contribute to the specific character of a place or experience.
