Vital Stats

He is 5' 9" and has light brown hair.

His interests include: art (doing and viewing), Magic the Gathering, bowling, chess, orienteering, movie watching (especially John Waters), and reading (philosophy, Shakespeare, and Christopher Rice). He is a definite photography monograph junkie.

His strongest art is photography and painting, but he knows a bit about almost all media. Some of his pieces are on his MySpace picture page. He did a series from photos found on MySpace, really trying to delve into the internet's possibilities for letting people create an ideal identity and the spectator's obsessive recreation of those identities.
